Programs: Aircraft Structural Repair Technicians

Damage to aircraft metal structures is often caused by corrosion, erosion, normal stress, accidents and mishaps.

Sometimes aircraft structure modifications require extensive structural rework. For example, the installation of winglets on aircraft not only replaces a wing tip with a winglet, but also requires extensive reinforcing of the wing structure to carry additional stresses. 

To make a structural repair, the aircraft technician needs a good working knowledge of sheet metal forming methods and techniques.  [source :]
