Corrosion Control and Prevention for Aircraft Structure and Engine Components

Course Outline | Who Should Attend | Registration | In-House | On-Demand | Online Courses | PPT Slides+Testbank | Course List | Why WebCorr

 Course Overview


Corrosion in aircraft can take many different forms and the resistance of aircraft materials to corrosion can drastically change with only a small environmental change. Prompt detection and removal of corrosion will limit the extent of damage to an aircraft and its components. This 3-day course covers the different types of corrosion commonly encountered in aircraft structures. Practical methods, materials and strategies for corrosion control and prevention are also discussed in depth. Real-life case studies are presented throughout the course. An Atlas of Corrosion Damages in Aircraft is included in the course note.


This corrosion course is available for in-house training, on-site training, online and distance learning worldwide. It can also be customized to meet the specific needs of your organization.
