STRUCTURAL MODIFICATIONS

The fuselage is manufactured with an insert plug to produce the recess for the sustainer system doors and the aperture for the engine box cut-out. Fuselage reinforcements are bonded between Bulkheads 8 and 9. Structural testing for certification purposes proved the fuselage was stiffer with the aperture and the reinforcements than without.

The monocoque engine box is made from carbon fibre reinforced composite material for minimal weight and adds to the overall strength of the fuselage. It is mounted to the recess lip with M6 bolts.
