According to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a jetliner is struck by lightning as often as once every 1,000 flying hours. Its metal and composite body conceals an array of components performing critical functions from navigation to engine controls.
To maintain safe and reliable performance each of these components must be protected against interference caused by lightning.
The effects of lightning on all-metal aircraft are well recognised however, as more and more aircraft utilise composite airframes, additional protection effort and measurements must be made.
The IET Lightning Protection for Aircraft Components is a unique seminar addressing the technical challenges in aircraft lightning protection - how to cope with major electromagnetic hazards and mitigate effects of lightning on various sensitive components of an aircraft.
Absolute must-attend event for all engineers working in the area of lightning and aircraft security!
