Aircraft Structural NDT Inspections
Conducting periodic nondestructive evaluations is very crucial in the effective structural management of aircraft components. These periodic inspections are performed on all commercial and civil aircraft after a certain amount of flight hours or take-offs and landings. In the U.S. airlines and large commercial operators follow programs specified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The airworthiness authority in Europe is EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency). Besides the FAA, ATS has also been approved by EASA as a Part-145 maintenance organization.
