AES and Jetglow to manufacture B737 Scratch Panes

Offering a wealth of experience repairing and refurbishing commercial aircraft interiors has led Jetglow Aircraft Refurbishments to identify several high-volume replacement parts and make significant savings on OEM costs to airline operators.

Alongside their carefully chosen Part 21J design partner – Aerospace Engineering Solutions – both companies have developed from concept to delivery Boeing 737 aftermarket scratch panes for cabin sidewall panels available for release on a Form 1 under Jetglow’s Part 21G approval. By bringing manufacturing capabilities to the UK, both companies can build on opportunities for the local market as well as saving airline’s significant costs.

The product – a protective screen used to eliminate airline passengers from touching the pressurized window, not only adds a layer of protection against contaminants but prevents passengers from touching sensitive areas of the aircraft.

Using CS25.853-compliant materials from carefully sourced suppliers and the collaboration of both companies’ capabilities with their highly skilled craftmanship and certified approvals, these high-volume replacement parts can be manufactured and supplied to airlines and MROs at aftermarket prices.

Jetglow Aircraft Refurbishment’s Technical Manager, James Lowrence comments:

“We’re delighted to be able to draw on our experience and expertise to offer aftermarket parts and complement our existing services to airlines and MRO’s – by acting as a one-stop-shop we’re in a great position to reduce costs for our customers. Working with the exceptional team at AES adds another layer of skill and confidence for our customers.”

Aerospace Engineering Solutions’ Director, Andrew Dolby also adds:

“We have been working closely with the Jetglow team for several months now on this project, delivering the design and engineering of scratch panes which benefits the airline industry.

“As an EASA 21J design organisation with a comprehensive scope of approvals and an ever-growing portfolio of products, the scratch pane solution is a great addition to our collection.”
