Sharklet introduction certification


The Sharklet is certified through a significant major change
(classification according to EASA Part 21). The target date for the
official approval is end of November 2012 for A320.
The sharklet doesnt create any new model. For that reason, it
remains as part of the existing EASA TC.

SRM
Complete revalidation of existing SRM is ongoing for both
reinforced Aircraft and Sharklet Aircraft

Objective is to complete all SRM task revalidation by end 2013


Outlook today indicated 65% temporary & ADL revalidated for Sharklet
Aircraft A320 EIS:
Nose Fwd fuselage (s11/12), Fwd fuselage (s13/14), Aft fuselage (s18), Aft Tail cone
(s19.1), PAX doors, landing gear doors, belly fairings, VTP,THS, rudder, elevator, pylons

SRM introduction includes Aircraft reinforcement and sharklet


modifications into repairs / ADL effectivity list.

Repairs shown as not applicable would need RAS in case-by-case basis


Sharklet device ADL/Repairs on-going:
Metallic Leading Edge ADL (Scratches, Gouges, Abrasions, Corrosion and Dents)
Lightning Strike damage
Sharklet composite structure repairs

Sharklet SRM coverage will be maintained vs current A320.

Spare & transportation


Spare sharklets
Two sets of sharklets planned to be available at EIS in Airbus to
support the fleet. One set in Singapore and one in Hamburg at EIS.

Out of production secured


Parts that will be out of production after Aircraft reinforcement is standard in
production have been identified and secured for aftermarket (Airbus Material,
Logistics and Suppliers in Hamburg).

Sharklet transportation
