A single modern aircraft contains up to 500 kilometers of cable connecting all the electrical systems with one another. An aircraft mechanic is to ensure that these avionics systems are running smoothly at all times.
ARTS aircraft electricians work in the fields of production, maintenance, and refurbishing of existing airliners. To verify the operative readiness of avionics and other components, our aircraft electricians employ various diagnostic and testing software, and replace defective parts as required. In addition, the aircraft electricians at ARTS are tasked with the installation and configuration of new electrical assemblies. This includes various sensor systems, hydraulics and pneumatic control elements, but also radar systems and autopilot. They are required to lay down electrical, data, and signal lines or replace entire wiring harnesses.
Since the safety implications are significant, these tasks require strict security and quality controls. ARTS aircraft electricians are certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA): with the CAT A and CAT B licences, they are authorized to give clearance for avionics and other aircraft systems following task completion.
In Hamburg, our aircraft alectronics engineers are involved in the production of numerous aircraft types of the Airbus family at Airbus Operations, among others. In our Airbus Defence and Space teams, they support the production of the Airbus A400M at the Bremen site and Airbus Helicopters in the assembly of the complete helicopter series at the Donauwörth site. In addition, our avionics engineers are involved in the production and maintenance of the Eurofighter and other military aircraft at our customer Airbus Defence and Space in Manching.
