Aircraft Testing Services
DTB’s proven test methods for aerospace structures, as well as components for fixed wing and rotorcraft applications, can bring your business to new heights. We cover proof of concept testing, conformity inspections, and complete RTCA/DO-160 certification testing to the latest revision.
DTB has extensive test facilities, teams of experienced aerospace engineers, support staff, and around-the-clock operations to complete your test programs efficiently and on schedule. We specialize in large unit testing on our T4000 and on our T5500 with head expander and a 3 in. displacement.
Our aerospace engineering and testing experience runs the gamut from non-destructive inspection (NDI) with a full, in-house, climate-controlled dimensional and metallurgical laboratory; to failure analysis, in-flight instrumentation, and data acquisition; to alternate source qualification testing – complete with design engineering, fabrication, and final approval.
