Airbus narrow body aircraft wings

Challenge

Airbus first started using MK Test equipment for function testing of the wiring to flght surfaces on wings. To this was added function and stress testing of the fuel supply system for civilian aircraft, checking wiring and the fuel quantity indicators that are heavily relied on during many hundreds of commercial aircraft flights, every day.

Subsequently, Airbus has added lightning protection testing to the progamme.
