Foreign Object Debris (FOD) is one the largest problems in the aviation arena. FOD is considered to be any object, debris, loose item, aviation tools or wildlife that can potentially cause damage to an aircraft or personnel. Preventing FOD is essential in order to ensure overall safety and proper functionality of an aircraft. Costs of
Maintaining safety assurance systems is an important requirement for MROs and FBOs. System maintenance may seem to require a large time investment upfront, but it leads to simplified safety processes over the long term. The best way to do this is by making safety systems work for you. Automating processes allow AMTs to spend more
Over the past few weeks, multiple news outlets have been reporting flight operation complications caused by unmanned aerial systems (UAS). The incidents raise the question of whether drones interfere with FOD prevention efforts. In early July 2017, an F-22 pilot had to avoid collision with a small UAS. On 30 July 2017, another UAS was
Ultrasonic test sets are used in the aviation industry for ultrasonic inspection. Ultrasonic inspection can be defined as a form of non-destructive testing during maintenance. During ultrasonic inspection, test sets project a high frequency of sound energy to detect flaws and to characterize material of equipment being tested. Ultrasonic test sets can be used to […]
Careless tool control issues cause companies thousands of dollars each year. This is due to tools either being lost, broken or misplaced. Careless tool control issues also include foreign object debris, such as tools being accidentally left within an aircraft after maintenance. In order to avoid these issues from happening, precise tool control is of […]
