    Abstract

    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 AIDS-recordings. 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.

    Keywords:

    load monitoring, aircraft integrated data systems, atmospheric turbulence, service load experience, data management, fatigue tests
