Aviation non-destructive testing (NDT) offers a safe and reliable method to inspect aircraft components and ensures the safety, airworthiness and efficiency of an airframe and components. NDT inspection can be a fast and cost-effective procedure in the early identification of defects.

Phoenix ISL design and manufactures NDT solutions for new aircraft and in-service MRO inspections. The range provides integrity testing of bonds and composite components including wing spars, aerofoils, stringers, and leading edge.

Corrosion mapping or ‘C-Scan’ is a UT application used for the inspection of composite materials, often found in airframes and components. Results for corrosion mapping provide a high degree of repeatability and the advantage of position and size data for every flaw which can be compared for repeat scans of the same area to track flaw growth or corrosion rates.

Advantages of Ultrasonic Inspection:

  • Safe and Economical method
  • Provides instant results
  • Can detect most defect types
  • Provides early warning for maintenance and repair resulting in less disruption to scheduled flights
  • Can generate instant reliable data providing useful information to predict and prevent unscheduled maintenance
  • Facilitates defect management
