CRS Jet Spares donated a Raytheon Premier fuselage to the Broward College Aviation Maintenance Technology program. This fuselage is a composite structure with a honeycomb core made from such materials as fiberglass, Kevlar and carbon fibers. It is the latest technology in aircraft fuselage manufacturing because of its light weight, exceptional strength and efficiency exceeding that of aircrafts composed of aluminum sheet metal. Because of the rising cost of fuel, a lighter aircraft enhances fuel efficiency. In response, the industry is seeing an increase in the number of aircraft being manufactured from composite materials. The donation enabled the Aviation Institute to enhance the curriculum for students with precise training and state-of-the-art techniques using the latest equipment flown in the industry today.
