Aircraft Structural Repair Manual Reading & Interpretation

This course content can be derived from and in accordance with the following documents:

  • SRM processes
  • Composite Allowable and Repairable Damage Limit Assessment
  • Prepreg Repair Process
  • Wet Layup Repair Process
  • Prepreg Repair Processes
  • SRM Boeing (SRM  Manual reading for a specific Type of Aircraft OEM type 
  • SRM Airbus  (SRM  Manual reading for a specific Type of Aircraft OEM type (on request )
  • AMM, IPC, SOHPM

The Aircraft Structural Repair Manual (SRM) is compiled in accordance with the ATA 100 (Air Transport Association). This was done to clarify specific instructions in order to perform correct repairs on aircraft.

The SRM contains material data, allowed criteria concerning structural damage and images of the most common repairs.

Every aircraft manufacturer OEM issues its own manual for each type of aircraft and its repair produces. This course participant will learn how to use these manuals and understand its ATA-100 setup information structure so that their search for repair rules will be swift and correct.
