Aircraft Airframe

Aircraft Airframe

The mechanical structure of an aircraft is known as the airframe. This structure is typically considered to include the fuselageundercarriageempennage and wings, and exclude the propulsion system.

Airbus and Boeing are the dominant assemblers of large jet airliners while ATRBombardier and Embraer lead the regional airliner market; many manufacturers produce airframe components.

Airframe production has become an exacting process. Manufacturers operate under strict quality control and government regulations. Departures from established standards become objects of major concern.
