AIRCRAFT INSPECTION

Inspections are visual examinations and manual


checks to determine the condition of an aircraft or
component..
Airframe and engine inspections may range from
preflight inspections to detailed inspections.
The time intervals for the inspection periods vary with
the models of aircraft involved and the types of
operations being conducted..
Aircraft operating under the flight hour system are
inspected when a specified number of flight hours are
accumulated.
BASIC INSPECTION TECHNIQUES:
Before starting an inspection, be certain all plates,
access doors, fairings, and cowling have been opened
or removed and the structure cleaned

When opening inspection plates and cowling and


before cleaning the area, take note of any oil or other
evidence of fluid leakage
PREPARATION:---
paperwork and/or reference manual information must
be accessed and studied before actually proceeding to
the aircraft to conduct the inspection.
The aircraft logbooks must be reviewed to provide
background information and a maintenance history of
the particular aircraft.
Additional publications may be referred to get an
information provided by the aircraft and engine
manufacturers, appliance manufacturers, parts
venders, and the Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA).
AIRCRAFT LOGS
Records the data in which aircraft during the service
period .
Information gathered in this log is used to determine
the aircraft condition, date of inspections, time on
airframe, engines and propellers..
When the inspections are completed, appropriate
entries must be made in the aircraft logbook certifying
that the aircraft is in an airworthy condition and may
be returned to service..
