Aviation maintenance is a time sensitive process, especially in aircraft on ground (AOG) situations. Aviation maintenance technicians want to complete work quickly, but make sure that the job is well done. But how can AMTs save time without compromising their work quality? The answer is 5S and shadow boards for aviation maintenance. 5S methodology can

Air Data Test Sets, also known as Pitot-Static Testers, simulate aircraft pressure and vacuum conditions to perform a number of measurement functions to test and verify an aircraft’s pitot-static system instruments without the need to remove them from the aircraft. This can reduce the calibration time and overall maintenance costs. They can perform a leak […]
