Cobham KC390 Probe Fairing

To support a customers first flight requirements, AGC AeroComposites was contracted to design and build the forward probe fairings for the the next generation Military Transport Aircraft being developed. The design of the probe fairing set was based on customer outline requirements for the full PDR and CDR design cycle.

The complete analysis included:

  • Strength – static, fatigue, vibration
  • Bird strike analysis
  • Lightning strike analysis
  • Environmental Qualification (RTCA DO-160)
  • Safety, DFMEA and maintenance documentation


This particular project featured very complex and high tolerance interface requirements and first part qualification to OEM requirements.  

All engineering tests were completed within the contracted timescales and no re-testing was required.
