- Visual Inspection is typically 80% of all inspection activities
- Visual Inspection forms a vital part of the many available Non Destructive Inspection (NDI) techniques
- Visual inspection is of the greatest importance to aviation reliability, for airframes, power plants and systems.
- Performed correctly it can detect a variety of defects, from cracks and corrosion to loose fasteners, ill-fitting doors, wear or stretching in control cables as well as damaged components.

Review by Sofema Aviation Services (SAS) www.sassofia.com

Introduction

The role of Aircraft Maintenance Inspector is without any doubt a complex task during which the inspector is required to visually search for multiple defects occurring at varying severity levels and differing locations, some of which may be difficult to reach or to achieve a comfortable position.

As aircraft age they are naturally more susceptible to defects and as a consequence typically require more intensive inspection programs.
