Test Services

We offer a series of test services to ensure that our technical components always perform, flawlessly, even in the toughest of conditions. In addition, our in-house teams evaluate how humidity, temperature, and electrical fluctuations impact equipment during air travel.
We also work with the ZARM Test Centre to conduct various tests on small and large-scale components.

Temperature Humidity Chamber

Aerospace components are exposed to extreme conditions during flight including, quick temperature changes which effect humidity levels as well. We conduct fully automated and individual temperature and humidity tests in our Temperature Humidity Chamber, as well as, parallel electrical tests to guarantee dependable operation.

Electrical Tests

Electrical components installed in aircraft are exposed to all types of conditions, including changes in frequency and power, power interrupts and or spikes. AES performs extensive electrical tests for these specific situations. Naturally, all our tests are ABD-compliant and fulfil the RTCA DO-160 standard.

Associated with the ZARM Test Centre

AES works closely with the ZARM Test Centre at the University of Bremen. This includes carrying out a variety of environmental tests for small and largescale aerospace components using the facility’s vibration test lab, thermal vacuum chamber, and hyper-gravity centrifuge.

Our certification staff training runs for approx. 3 days. All participants take an exam roughly 4 to 6 weeks after the course. Each participant, who successfully passes the exam, receives a certificate of participation.

2. Aviation Legislation Training for Management

We offer a more condensed version of the training course for management employees.
The training course runs approx. 8 hours and does not have an exam.

Topic overview:

  • Laws, decrees, and edicts
  • Administration of air traffic
  • ICAO
  • JAA/EASA
  • Design, development, and sample testing
