Hamble Aerostructures (HAL)

Building on more than 80 years of history

The facility is equipped to handle large components and complex structures, including the wing fixed trailing-edge (WFTE) for the Airbus A350 XWB. The WFTE involves over 3.000 deliverable components and requires the integration of metallic and composite wing-based systems as well as provisions for moving structures (flaps, ailerons and spoilers).

HAL also provides the complete engine nacelle assembly for the De Havilland Dash 8 Q400 regional turbo prop and the cockpit windscreen and canopy systems for the BAE Systems Hawk and T-45 Goshawk trainer aircraft, among other elements.

Hamble Aerostructures retains Customer Delegated Design Authority (CDDA) for major programs, allowing the company to execute component design modifications and upgrades.

HAL is an active participant in Clean Sky 2, the largest European aeronautical R&D initiative.
