Wing Flaps, Ailerons, Vertical Ruder & Horizontal Stabilizer

RUAG Aerostructures has a significant work share in the wings of the Northrop F-5 Freedom Fighter and the F-5E Tiger II with the Wing Flaps, Ailerons, Vertical ruder und Horizontal stabilizer....

The assemblies produced at RUAG include the horizontal stabilizers for the F-5 Tiger, rudders for the F-5 and T-38 models, ailerons and wing flaps. The competences involved range from aircraft design and engineering, thin sheet metal precision structures, manufacturing components from milled metal and composite components, joining or bonding of metal and the treatment and finishing of surfaces to their integration in assemblies consisting of individual or hybrid materials. The range of procedures available are rounded off by in-house non-destructive testing facilities. Most of these processes are NADCAP-certified according to aviation industry requirements.
