Wind Erosion Prevention and Repair of Composite Material Components of Civil Aircraft
This paper addresses how to discover wind erosion of aircraft components in time and to take appropriate measures to repair and prevent damage, thereby reducing the cost of aircraft maintenance and prolonging aircraft service life. The authors of this paper have extensively compiled and studied civilian aircraft maintenance data in the recent years from Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Co. Ltd. In this paper they discuss the aircraft components most susceptible to wind erosion, as well as repair methods and prevention mechanisms. These findings can serve as a reference and a guide to civilian aircraft flight maintenance, repair, and routine inspections.
