At MHIRJ, our team of experts will bring your aircraft to life by applying their vast experience, finely honed skills and in-depth industry knowledge. From early conceptual design to certification and entry-into-service, we will assist you in each stage of aircraft development followed by providing ongoing support throughout the life of your aircraft.

The Science of Engineering Excellence

To ensure superior aircraft design, efficiency and value for airlines and a superior flying experience for their customers, we offer expertise in Acoustics, Aerodynamics, Aircraft & Engine Performance, Loads, Structural Dynamics, Stability & Control, Thermodynamics, EMC, Lightning, and HIRF.

Our wide range of services extends from Certification program and Flight Test requirements to Load Analysis, Handling and Performance assessments, Tool development and Flight simulations. Our Flight Science team also offers Aerodynamic design expertise and handles noise/emission certification as well as conducts thermal zonal and structural assessments, flutter and control reversal analysis and lightning and HIRF protection.

Systems, Avionics and Powerplant Engineering

As specialists in aeronautical product development and sustaining activities, we offer end-to-end services across the critical areas of Systems, Avionics and Powerplant Engineering. On each project, we begin with the customer’s needs. We look at all functional and operational requirements and hold product design requirement reviews to assure accuracy and reliability that leads to certification.

 

Testing, Compliance and Continued Support

 

In addition to securing design approval to airworthiness standards, our specialists will prepare all flight test plans and flight assessments as well as qualification testing. We will conduct risk assessments and provide engineering to ensure compliance and safety throughout the life of the aircraft. For maximum reliability, maintainability and safety, we can handle all repairs, concessions and airworthiness limitation changes.

Aircraft interiors that focus on appearance, functionality and ease-of-use give airlines a competitive edge and passengers a better in-flight experience. Our team of experts will help you transform your ideas into a certifiable configuration. From aircraft interior design to certification and in-service, we help assure optimal interiors by working in close collaboration with key groups such as Stress, Systems Design, Flammability, Methods, Production and Interior as well as customer design engineering.

 

Inner Strengths from Industry Experts

 

Our experts will oversee all interior mockups, concepts and interfaces. We will also provide detailed drawings and installation drawings of interior components, then conduct qualification testing and final certification of your aircraft interior.

Our Aerostructures team works on innovative designs that are safe, reliable and highly efficient. We offer end-to-end service that extends from Airframe Concepts and Designs to Testing and Certification as well as sustaining activities. For us, creating aerostructures is a collaborative effort that includes Loads and Dynamics of Structures, Materials and Processes (M&P), In-Service Engineering (ISE), Flight Science and Aerodynamics.

 

Building on Experience

 

Using advanced 3D designs and digital electronic mockups, our team will create the concept layout and handle details assemblies, installations, tooling, DV and experimental drawings. From preliminary design to production drawings and stress certification reports and analysis, we provide drawings required for all phases of product development. This includes providing installation drawings of hydraulic, electrical, avionics and fuel systems. And, we assure your solution by conducting a complete set of tests: Stress Analysis, Statics, Fatigue, DTA, Design sizing and optimization of the primary and secondary structure.

With MHIRJ, you benefit from an experienced technical publications team dedicated to helping you meet your technical publications and maintenance programs development needs, on schedule and on budget. We offer experienced technical authors, illustrators, editors and publishing experts to create and manage the content necessary, ensuring that up-to-date technical documentation is available to your customers for safe and effective operations.
