Mainblades achieved a major milestone. For the first time in Europe, a fully automated outdoor airport drone inspection was performed.
Aircraft visual inspections are the most recurring procedure in aviation maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO) to ensure the aircraft’s airworthiness. Over 75 percent of inspections on large transport aircraft are visual. It is the process of using the naked eye to inspect and detect damages or anomalies that might pose a risk to the continued safe operation of the aircraft. Therefore, as the most basic method of assessing the overall condition of an aircraft and its parts, aircraft visual inspections must be accurate and proficient in order to report defects, manufacturing errors, or component fatigue.
