Abaris Training has won a one-year, renewable training contract with the Federal Aviation Administration to train FAA aviation safety inspectors in advanced composite maintenance and repair. Inspectors will learn basic principles of advanced composite structures to help them determine reliability of major composite repairs in the field and monitor successful maintenance of aircraft. Classes for more than 190 students will begin in June and continue through the end of 2009.
Repair and maintenance of modern aircraft such as the Boeing 787, the Hawker 4000, and many others that use composite materials in primary structures, require detailed knowledge and techniques in a rapidly evolving industry.
Topics covered in the course, “Composite Awareness for the Aviation Safety Inspector,” reflect the growing use of composite materials in not only interior panels and control surfaces but also wings and fuselages.
For example, a key component of the class is familiarization with methods used to detect hidden damage in composite structures as part of maintenance procedures. Inspectors will also learn how and why repair designs and processes must meet the same performance requirements as the basic structure of the aircraft. Documentation, regulations, airworthiness and certification topics will be covered in depth.
