S7 Technics has carried out C and 6Y checks at its Tolmachevo (Novosibirsk) facility on a Boeing 737-800 of Globus Airlines. In addition, fuel tank structure inspections involving Flight Length Sensitive (FLS) tasks were successfully completed. The latter included 144 individual operations. Most of the work involved various NDT procedures, including low- and high-frequency eddy-current inspections and ultrasound appraisals.
In general, the mandatory tank structure inspections were carried out in three main stages that, in the first phase, required some secondary structural elements of the aircraft to be dismantled. These included flap, engine struts and wing-to-fuselage junction fairings, as well as other equipment involving wiring and pipes. After that, the experts removed old sealants and cleaned up the inspected surfaces. In the second stage, all prepared areas were inspected, before the third stage included the preparation of surfaces and the restoration of sealants in several phases.
The tank structure inspection was accomplished by a team of category A and B engineers and mechanics. In total, 25 individuals were involved in the FLS work. By the end of 2019, S7 Technics specialists are due to inspect the tank structures of three more Globus Airlines 737-800s.
