Training has been identified as the key intervention strategy to improve quality and reliability of inspection of aircraft and reduce errors. This paper explores use of advanced technology for inspection training and reducing errors in inspector general aviation industry. Investigation was extended earlier work on formation of computer-based inspection for commercial aviation system in the system of inspection training for general aviation (GA) industry. This article describes results of research carried out over three years with following objectives: (1) task analysis of existing inspection operations in geographically dispersed locations GA, development (2) and organizes content to support training of inspection, (3) deliver the prototype training system and (4) Share research results to GA community and research community of aviation.

Relevance to industry

Designed specifically for training aircraft maintenance technicians in skills of inspection, inspection tool of computer-based training right aires - General Aviation Inspection Training System uses the multimedia approach to presenting opportunities for interaction between user and computer. It is expected that use of this tool to systematize and standardize inspection process training in general aviation industry.

Keywords: general aviation, visual inspection, training, computer-based training

Chapter I: Introduction

Background and need for research

Need for task analysis

For Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to provide public with the safe and reliable air transport is important to have an aircraft inspection and maintenance system sound (FAA, 1991). This system inspection and maintenance is complex with many humans to each other and components of machine, with human's vital element. Recognizing this role of human person, FAA ...
