Having the right tools to make composite repairs is important.

The K3000 composite repair kit, NSN 4920-01-628-2469, is a portable kit with specialized tools used to facilitate composite repairs while away from a fixed facility.

The Aviation Ground Support Equipment (AGSE) product office folks have integrated the K3000 composite repair kit into two separate aircraft tool sets. In each Aviation Maintenance Company (formerly AVUM), the K3000 is in the Aviation Unit Maintenance Tool Set: No. 2 Airmobile-Enhanced, NSN 4920-01-551-7472. The Composite Repair Kit is also in each Aviation Support Company’s (formerly AVIM) Tool Crib Shop Set, NSN 4920-01-600-7362.

The Aviation Support Companies also have the Composite Shop Set, NSN 4920-01-600-7365, which provides tools and some materials to make higher level composite repairs to aircraft.
