On average, every commercial aircraft is struck by lightning once or twice a year. After the aircraft lands, an inspection must always be performed to assess the state of the aircraft prior to return to service. The Airbus A320 is no exception and here you will learn the ins and outs of lightning strike inspections performed on this aircraft type.
The Airbus A320 was developed to compete with the Boeing 737 and it first entered service with Air France on April 18th, 1988. Since the first unveiling, more than 9,000 aircraft have been delivered to airlines worldwide. It is still the most versatile aircraft type ever built.
