This paper covers development of repair procedures for the polymer composite (PC) structures using the off-line repair equipment (ORE). The ORE capabilities and examples of use are described. Several design and technological solutions for repair of PC components with the use of ORE directly on the aircraft have been developed. Procedures for repair of defective areas in the PC components of the transport aircraft are described.

Strength properties and reparability have been analyzed upon completion of the activities. Recommendations on the use of ORE during repair on the aircraft in the field conditions have been developed.
