Cleaning and Corrosion Control

This course is designed to partially fulfill the curriculum requirements as set out in Appendix B Part 147 General Curriculum Subjects for Aviation Maintenance Technician Schools established by the Federal Aviation Administration Regulations.

This course will introduce you to what corrosion is and how it occurs in aircraft. You will learn the two main types of corrosion, the various forms it commonly takes, and the areas of aircraft that are particularly susceptible. For each metal used in aircraft structures, you will learn about removal of, and treatment for, corrosion. Since regular and comprehensive cleaning is critical to controlling corrosion, the methods and tools of interior and exterior aircraft cleaning are explored.
