FAA-PMA Certifications Regarding Airline Fasteners

The Federal Aviation Administration or FAA is the regulating body for all aircraft in the United States and most of the world. In accordance with FAA regulations, all airplanes that fly in or to the US must submit to heavy checks (or “D checks”) at least once every eight years. These heavy checks essentially require that the entire plane is inspected and disassembled, including a thorough examination of every part of the plane to check for wear, damage, corrosion, or failure. Any parts or components that do not pass inspection must be repaired or replaced before the plane can fly again.
In some instances, FAA heavy checks can lead to very high repair costs. For example, following one-floor inspection, an airline had to pay over $1 million just to replace seat tracks on a plane. The seat tracks were badly damaged from corrosion that started with scratches from metal fasteners. To combat the corrosion problem that this airline faced, Marketing Masters’ implemented composite clip nut installation throughout the plane.
