Aircraft inspections are the most recurrent procedure to assess the condition of the aircraft and its parts. Did you know that over 80 percent of inspections on large transport aircraft are visual? Here is an overview of aircraft visual inspections in aviation maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO).
Aircraft inspections, scheduled or not, are necessary to keep the fleet airworthy. The current inspection methods involve multiple personnel operating man lifts to access upper areas and assess the aircraft status. As well as being challenging, the process can keep the aircraft out of service for up to 24 hours, resulting in significant financial implications. With that in mind, we provide aircraft drone inspections – an automated, cost-effective solution to decrease the time of aircraft inspections by 75%. Our solution relies on a state-of-the-art drone and a customized software interface to provide an in-depth assessment of the aircraft status. With our tool, aircraft engineers can collect, report, and share data in real-time, leading to a game-changing advantage: you can quickly act to minimize aircraft downtime and associated costs.
