The Gill Corporation announces A380 floor panel replacement qualifications

The Gill Corporation announces that Gillfab 4505 and Gillfab 4605 have been qualified by Airbus for use as replacement cabin floor panel material in A380 aircraft.

Originally qualified in 1997 for use in single-aisle and long-range Airbus aircraft, these panel designs offer a demonstrated history of in-service durability. 

Supplied in a semi-finished condition, Gillfab 4505 and Gillfab 4605 enable airlines and maintenance providers to produce a multitude of different replacement panels, across variant models. 

Candi Burdick, Director of Aftermarket Sales states “By eliminating the necessity to purchase and/or inventory a variety of unique floor panel configurations, customers have realized cost savings, reduced turnaround times and greater inventory flexibility. We’ve supported Airbus operators and maintenance providers for more than three decades and are pleased to have the opportunity to extend these same benefits and value to A380 operators.” 

The Gill Corporation is headquartered in El Monte, CA.
