The Project RepAIR will perform research on future repair and maintenance for the Aerospace industry. Therefore the onsite maintenance and repair of aircraft by in-tegrated direct digital manufacturing is in the focus of this project. The main objective of RepAIR is to shift the make or buy decision towards the make decision by cost reduction in the remake and rework of spare parts and therefore improve cost efficiency for maintenance repair in aeronautics and air transport. A crucial advantage of this technology is the flexible availableness (even at the gate) allowing on-time maintenance. Through a higher level of automation und fewer stages of production, less personal costs are necessary which therefore reduce the MRO costs. These operations require a higher qualification and promote the preservation and expansion of highly qualified workplaces in Europe. Moreover, the storage costs will be significantly reduced. As only the raw material needs to be stored, instead of having to have in stock up to 3.6 million spare parts for the multitude of airplanes and varieties of aircraft manufacturers, less capital is locked up. Additionally, hardly any energy intensive produced raw material will be wasted or destroyed, but will be used optimally. When looking ahead, with the aid of AM technology, it will be possible to shorten the entire spare parts supply chain to sending an e-mail. The benefit for all those involved, including the environment, is obvious. New business models will become sustainable. Through a higher level of automation und fewer stages of production, less personal costs are necessary which therefore reduce the MRO costs. These operations require a higher qualification and promote the preservation and expansion of highly qualified workplaces in Europe and make them more competitable.

A method for cleaning a jet engine includes introducing into the engine, via a carrier gas by way of at least one nozzle, a cleaning medium which contains solids. The pressure of the carrier gas is 1 to 5 bar. An exit of the at least one nozzle is disposed at a radial spacing from a rotation axis of the engine which corresponds to 0.6 to 1.2 times the radius of the entry opening of a first compressor stage that is directed upstream. A main exit direction of the nozzle in relation to the rotation axis of the engine encloses an angle of 10 to 30.

The invention relates to an aircraft seat comprising an adjusting device, the aircraft seat comprising at least one adjustable seat element. The seat element has an adjustable state and a locked state, the seat element being adjustable by means of manual force application and/or force application by a spring element and/or force application due to the weight of parts of the aircraft seat only in the adjustable state. The adjusting device comprises at least one control element and at least one locking element, the locking element being movable by means of the control element between a locking position in which the seat element is locked, and a neutral position in which the seat element is adjustable. The control element is an electronic and/or electric switch, and the locking element can be moved between the locking position and the neutral position by means of an electrically operated actuator which can be actuated by means of signals from the switch.
