A4A/SAE “Better Way Award” Honors Composite Structure Inspection Training Program

September 25 2017

Airlines for America (A4A), the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, and SAE International, the ultimate knowledge source for mobility engineering, jointly presented the 15th annual “Better Way Award” at the recent Nondestructive Testing (NDT) Forum to a team comprising members from Sandia National Laboratories, the FAA, Delta Air Lines, NORDAM, and NDT Solutions, Inc. for furthering the science and efficacy of nondestructive testing.

Recognizing the increasing use of composite materials for airplane structure, the FAA’s William J. Hughes Techincal Center convened industry experts from Original Equipment Manufacturers (e.g. Boeing, Airbus, and Bombardier), airlines, and other industry stakeholders to develop improved training curricula for inspectors. The effort assures better training and incorporates physical specimens for hands-on experience.
