General Aviation EWIS Risk Assessment
Smaller aircraft, which comprise most of the general aviation (GA) aircraft fleet, suffer from the same problems that larger ones experience – as wires age and fail, the aircraft’s airworthiness is affected. However, given the smaller scale of these aircrafts, a full risk assessment is impractical. For these cases, Lectromec has developed a simplified process that can be economically applied to smaller aircraft.
Possible EWIS components for life assessment include:
- An assessment of:
- Wiring from selected zones
- Circuit breakers
- On-site physical inspection
The results of an EWIS assessment can be easily integrated with an existing maintenance program to provide a higher level of airworthiness assurance. For those looking to purchase an aircraft, the wire system physical assessment can be used to verify its quality and condition.
At the completion of the examination, you will receive a report detailing the quality of the components tested and, if applicable, a forecast on remaining component life and a comparison to other aircraft with a similar use history.
