Aircraft Damage Statements


In close cooperation and coordination with approved EASA Part 145 and approved FAA 14 CFR Part 43 / 145 maintenance repair and overhaul shops, we record inspect and evaluate occurred damages to aircraft and aircraft components. Object damage inspections are performed by licensed Aircraft Mechanics and/or Certifying Staff, respectively.

We are competent in inspecting, reporting and evaluating damages on:

  • EASA CS-VLA aircraft,

  • EASA CS-23 aircraft,

  • EASA CS-25 aircraft,

and components thereof.

AVICERT-Aircraft-Damage-Statements

Typical damages on aircraft surface, structure or components can be listed and classified as follows:





Gouge:
A damaged area where the result is a cross-sectional change caused by a sharp object and gives a continuous, sharp or smooth groove in the material

Holes: 
Punctures, penetrations or cutouts that breach the complete thickness of the material and is fully surrounded by undamaged material.

Nicks:
Broken edges without cracks, but with portions of material removed.

Scratches:
Marks penetrating the surface that reduce the structural cross section of the material which do not penetrate the complete thickness.

Abrasion: 
A damaged area that is the result of scuffing, rubbing, scraping, or other surface erosion. This type of damage is usually rough and has an irregular shape.

Corrosion: 
Deterioration of a metal because of an electrochemical reaction with its environment. Depending on the type of corrosion, this deterioration may take the form cracking, exfoliation, or erosion of the corroding material. Corrosion damage is typically classified as light, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of the corrosion and the loading requirements of the corroded part.

Cracks:
Fractures that would not separate the material into two parts if the surrounding supports were removed; usually originating at edges, holes, or points where concentrated loads are applied or where abrupt changes in cross-sectional area occur.

Delamination:
Separation of the layers of material in a laminate, either local or covering a wide area, that occurs during manufacturing or in service. Fiber-reinforced and composites may delaminate when impacted and not exhibit visible damage.

Dents:
A Dent is depressed or hollow deformations without removal of material or change in cross sectional area.

Disbonds:
An area within a bonded interface between two adherents in which an adhesion failure or separation has occurred. If the separation is performed deliberately to referred to as a debond.
