Airbus partner and aerospace structures company Aerolia has delivered the first A350 XWB nose section to Airbus’ facility in St. Nazaire, France.
The A350 XWB nose section comprises three main sub-assemblies: the cockpit plus upper and lower forward fuselage parts, which incorporate door one and the nose landing gear bay. The A350 XWB nose section is made of 40% composites, 55% aluminum/aluminum-lithium and 5% titanium. Once assembled and equipped, the nose section will be joined to the forward fuselage to form the A350 XWB front fuselage, Airbus said.
