Automated Inspection for Aerospace via CT
Posted: 2021-10-1Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly 75% of the world’s aviation fleet was grounded at the peak meaning that fewer than 7,500 aircraft remained airborne. Some estimates state are that it will take a minimum of two-and-a-half years post the peak of the Coronavirus pandemic for the grounded 75% to take to the skies once more. As the virus spread is controlled, aviation’s globally essential nature means that the sector will continue its pre-COVID-19 growth, and realize a fleet of more than 35,000 by 2030. Pas...Read More.
