ASSESSMENT OF SERVICE LOAD EXPERIENCE USING AIDS-RECORDED DATA
Inspection periods and safe service lives of transport aircraft are based on an assumed average design load experience. Actual service loads may deviate appreciably from these assumptions. Fatigue related load data may be obtained on a routine basis from aircraft integrated data system recordings. The system in use by KLM, SAS, and Swissair for their Boeing 747s is described and the importance of careful data quality checking is stressed. Examples illustrate the highly relevant information with regard to aircraft usage and loading environment that may be obtained.
