Airbus to Use Drones for Aircraft Inspection

Airbus will now be using Drones for aircraft inspection to speed up the process.

For ensuring the flight safety aircraft inspection is necessary, but inspectors themselves feels unsafe while doing this work.

For reviewing an aircraft’s condition workers has to lift the plane via cranes and examine the components. This is very time taking process along with high risk and labor.

For solving this issue Airbus came up with the new inspection process at the Farnborough Airshow.

A drone at the Farnborough Airshow with an Intel Real Sense camera captured the photos rapidly of an A330. After that the images were applied to the 3D model of aircraft and inspectors get a close and detailed view of the craft.

Using a drone for inspection process took only 10-15 minutes whereas from hand the process takes around 2 hours.

By the end of this year, Airbus will complete all its initial testing program, and is hoping to scale this program worldwide very soon.
