Aircraft are inspected visually on a regular basis to ensure their airworthiness. Scheduled and unscheduled visual inspections are always a long, costly process.
Explore our different use cases and learn how you can benefit from Donecle’s technology to optimize your maintenance process.
Whether you are an Airline, a MRO, a Lessor or an aircraft manufacturer, we have the solution to inspect your aircraft faster and more efficiently.
Reduce turnaround time and AOG costs after a lightning strike
When an aircraft is struck by lightning, it has to be grounded for inspection until the entry/exit points are found.
This takes several hours and leads to operational losses for operators.
instead of 6 to 12 hours for manual inspection

Speed up and increase reliability of aircraft visual inspections
During C Checks, early detection of defects during zonal inspections (GVI) is key to ensure on-time repairs and aircraft delivery.
Aircraft visual inspections are a long, costly and subjective process, depending on inspectors’ expertise and experience. Accurately locating defects in relation to aircraft coordinates is challenging.
This can lead to last-minute job card updates, missing information when communicating with OEMs, or claims from the operator or lessor during aircraft release and end-of-lease periods.
Automated drone inspection when aircraft enters the hangar delivers a detailed and objective inspection report. Damage charts are swiftly updated and repairs can be planned on time.
Precise positioning of all defects vs frames & stringers enables reliable follow-up and objective comparison of aircraft status over time. This guarantees an up-to-date damage mapping chart for faster and more reliable inspections.
For MROs, the solution provides an objective visual proof for your customers during end-of-lease checks.
instead of 6 hours for manual GVI
Objective, exhaustive inspections
Increase efficiency of marking and placard checks
With 150 to 300 external placards to be checked manually on a narrowbody aircraft, regulatory marking inspections are a long process with low added value.
Infringement of regulation due to invalid or missing markings can lead to fines and even to aircraft grounding.
Automated inspection and report providing status of all markings and decals (presence and integrity) with direct retrieval of P/Ns for reordering.
Donecle helps make placard checks faster and objective, contributing to a paperless workflow.
45 minutes instead of 5 hours for manual check
No risk of P/N error for placard reordering
