VISUAL INSPECTIONS TODAY

to inspect an aircraft visually
Time consuming
Inspecting an entire airframe lasts between 6 to 10 hours during which aircraft are little more for airlines than unused assets.
Inefficient
Inspections mobilise heavy equipment and qualified personnel that could be assigned to more productive tasks in the hangar or on the tarmac.
Costly
Airlines lose $10K for every hour an aircraft is not flying, both in direct inspection costs (hangar, equipment, inspectors) and indirect opportunity costs (flight cancellations, replacement aircraft, etc.).
Dangerous
Inspectors use cherry-pickers, lifelines or platforms at considerable heights to access all surfaces of the aircraft, incurring substantial risks for their safety.
