Within the Emitech Group, our subsidiary LEFAE (French acronym of Aeronautical and Electrical Fire Testing Laboratory) has just been recognized by Airbus in its QTML as an independent laboratory able to offer its fire testing capabilities for materials, components and equipment installed in aircraft.
Its tests are aimed at Airbus suppliers who are required to demonstrate the conformity of their products and associated processes throughout the entire life cycle of the aircraft program. This implies on the one hand the initial qualification tests of these articles or processes but also the tests to maintain this conformity according to the periodicity required by Airbus.
The official Airbus QTML (Qualified Test Methods List) document is available online on the Airbus website.
The different types of tests covered by this recognition are as follows:
