AFRA is developing a network of research partners, who are invited to participate alongside the Association’s Research & Development Committee to contribute their research content and expertise to advance the aircraft end-of-life industry. AFRA’s research network will provide a valuable forum to bolster industry research and dialogue. Participants in this network will have access to a database of research reports, ability to coordinate with the AFRA R&D Committee members and fellow network participants for feedback on research, data collection, etc., and will have the opportunity to participate in AFRA conferences.
