Aircraft Inspection Techniques

Duration 3 Days
Effective maintenance inspections may result lower down times of aircraft during their operational life between base maintenance events and also less "unexpected" findings during scheduled line maintenance events. To this end, maintenance personnel who perform inspections must be well trained in inspection techniques so that they will contribute to the required effectiveness. Many Aviation Maintenance Organizations report that problems are encountered during maintenance visits since aircraft inspectors do not interpret the maintenance requirements in the same manner and hence the outcome of the same inspection is not to the same standard when performed by different persons. This has an adverse effect not only to the quality of work but also to the efficiency of maintenance production lines. It has been identified that training of personnel is a solution to this problem. This training course aims to achieve a common understanding of the terms used and the standards called by the maintenance requirements (i.e. the requirements of a maintenance program as these have been deployed within the job/task cards).
