Corrosion is usually discovered when an aircraft is stripped for paint, typically after aircraft maintenance is complete. When this occurs, the aircraft is returned to the hangar for structural repair, which adds several weeks to the project schedule.
By stripping an aircraft before maintenance begins, surface corrosion can be detected and in many cases repaired without disrupting the project schedule.
Written by industry experts, this document explores the concept of what Duncan Aviation calls an "out-of-sequence strip and paint event," including when it's recommended, customer experiences, downtime saved and scheduling considerations.
