  • Patent number: 11453503
    Abstract: A coupling is disclosed providing fluidic continuity between first and second orifices of two portions of an air circuit which includes a flexible sleeve, a first frame connected in fluid-tight manner to a first end of the flexible sleeve and having a first opening, and a second frame, connected in fluid-tight manner to a second end of the flexible sleeve and having a second opening. The coupling is deformable so that the flexible sleeve may adapt to the variable spacing between two avionics racks and is able to compensate for a misalignment between the orifices of two portions of an air circuit.

  • Patent number: 10828760
    Abstract: A method enabling two holes belonging to two parts to be aligned relies on use of a tool, comprising a body, having a first outer surface which gradually wanders from a longitudinal axis of the body as it extends from a first end of the body, and a hollow part having a second outer surface with a complementary section to the section of the holes. The hollow part comprises a hole through which it is removably mounted on the tool so that the second outer surface extends the first outer surface on an opposite side to the first end of the body. The method comprises inserting the first end of the body into the first hole, and then operating the tool to push the body and then the hollow part together into the holes. This method especially applies to the assembly of a floor module to an aircraft fuselage.

  • Publication number: 20200198755
    Abstract: A wall covering panel for a nose of an aircraft. The panel comprises a rigid carrying framework preferably having an alveolar structure obtained by 3-D printing, a decor carried by the carrying framework and an acoustically and thermally insulating padding fixed to the carrying framework, and also attachments for fixing the carrying framework to the primary structure of the aircraft. Preferably, the panel also integrates systems, such as electrical route portions or ventilation route portions that traverse the panel from one side to the other or lead to an outlet equipment item also integrated in the panel. Only the carrying structure of the panel, which carries the decor, the insulating padding and any route portions and equipment items, is fixed to the primary structure of the aircraft. The number of attachments is low; the kitting-out and the finishing of the nose of the aircraft are greatly simplified.
