Every vehicle, instrument or product is subject to a wide range of mechanical or environmental stress, due to use, transportation, storage, or operation. They often operate within certain ranges of temperature, vibrations, humidity, and corrosive agents among others. Due to this situation, certain tests are required to evaluate and ensure their performance according to a certain life expectancy.


Besides merely aeronautical work and due to a need to support industrial growth in the country, FAdeA provides services to national entities, oil industry, automobile industry, among others, being part of their suppliers development programs for the certification of products in accordance with national, international and company standards, achieving technology innovation, new products and import replacement. It is a relevant activity due to the support provided to development of the industry and nationalization of components.


Areas of Implementation

Aeronautical Structural Tests

In their labs, FAdeA provides testing services, preparing required devices and instruments for proper monitoring, results evaluation, and technical reports preparation, supported by the following capabilities and equipment:


    Static and fatigue structural testing with servo controlled systems.
    Environmental simulation, vacuum, pressure, and temperature tests.
    Brake assemblies and rolling testing.
    Hydraulic tests.
    Material study and research
    Physical, chemical and metallographic tests.
    Fracture Causes research.
    Voltage measurement by extensometers (strain gages)


Aircraft instrumentation for Testing and Certification

FAdeA has an area for aeronautical calibration, testing and measurement with the ability to incorporate aircraft equipment to record on board parameters and transmit them to a mobile telemetry analysis room “On Time” for post-evaluation. The area is able to develop the data acquisition system by selecting sensors and data acquisition units besides performing system programming and calibration.


Modern aircraft industry requires compliance with national and international standards to ensure airworthiness and flight safety on aircraft.
