Ft Lauderdale, Florida – September 30, 2017 - Airlines for America (A4A), the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, and SAE International, the ultimate knowledge source for mobility engineering, jointly presented the 15th annual "Better Way Award" at the recent Nondestructive Testing (NDT) Forum to a team comprising members from Sandia National Laboratories, the Federal Aviation Administration, Delta Air Lines, NORDAM, and NDT Solutions, LLC for furthering the science and efficacy of nondestructive testing.

Recognizing the increasing use of composite materials for airplane structure, the FAA’s William J. Hughes Technical Center convened industry experts from Original Equipment Manufacturers like Boeing, Airbus, and Bombardier, as well as airlines, and other industry stakeholders to develop improved training curricula for inspectors. The effort assures better training and incorporates physical specimens for hands-on experience.

Members of the 2017 "Better Way Award" team include Russell Jones and David Westlund of FAA; John Bohler, Robert Hager and Alexander Melton of Delta; Stephen Neidigk, Tom Rice and Dennis Roach of Sandia; Daryl Graham and Jeff Harper of NORDAM; and Larry Culbertson of NDT Solutions.

"A4A congratulates this year’s winning team for their innovative approach toward improving aircraft inspector training, while further strengthening the U.S. airline industry’s world-class aviation safety record," said A4A Senior Vice P

resident, Safety, Security and Operations Billy Nolen. "Working in partnership, this team of industry leaders reflects our commitment to utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology and innovation through all phases of flight to ensure a safe and enjoyable travel experience for the 2.2 million customers who fly on U.S. airlines every day."

A4A’s NDT Forum is marking its 60th year at a four-day conference held in Fort Lauderdale, Fl., where industry leaders met last week to discuss current trends, issues and successes in NDT methodologies. The event featured a number of presentations on achievements and lessons learned about technologies that help ensure the life and safety of aircraft structures by detecting defects well before they can be seen or cause a failure. This year’s topics showcased methodologies associated with composite structures, additive manufacturing and new repair methods for older aircraft models.


Annually, commercial aviation helps drive $1.5 trillion in U.S. economic activity and more than 10 million U.S. jobs. Airlines fly more than 2.2 million passengers and 50,000 tons of cargo each day. Airlines for America (A4A) advocates on behalf of the American airline industry as a model of safety, customer service and environmental responsibility and as the indispensable network that drives our nation’s economy and global competitiveness.

A4A works collaboratively with the airlines, labor groups, Congress and the Administration to improve air travel for everyone.

FlawInspecta is finding Increased Acceptance in Ultrasonic NDT Applications

Due largely to the increasing use of carbon fiber composite materials found within the structures of civil aircraft programs like the Airbus A350 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner, many major aircreaft OEMs now face some very unique and specfic test and measurement challenges. The requirement for every part to be 100% inspected sees growing concern over the additional time and resources that will be needed to complete such tasks.  Established in 1975, primarily to develop real-time medical imaging solutions.   

NDT Solutions, Inc. moves to a new Office (April 2012) AGAIN

10-1 Airport Rd,  New Richmond, WI  54017

Since its founding 14 years ago, Non Destructive Testing Solutions Inc., a game changer in the paradigm of non-destructive inspection and ultrasonic aircraft testing, has steadily outgrown leased space in the New Richmond, Wis., Creamery building. Its newest home just might be the perfect fit - the New Richmond airport.

"Finding this location was a happy accident," said Jesse Skramstad, president and founder of NDTS, which moved operations into a hangar Arpril 2012. "We had been looking at options for expanding or moving. One day an employee was looking to buy a small airplane, and was checking Craigslist. He came running into my office and said, ‘We need to move here!’ and showed me the listing for the hangar."

The hangar had previously been occupied by Baumann Floats, which made seaplane floats. Baumann closed and moved remaining operations to Basler Turbo Conversions of Oshkosh and consequently was selling the New Richmond hangar.

NDTS built two levels of offices for sales and administration, research/development and engineering, an assembly area, inventory room and fulfillment center. "We are lucky to have investors who purchased the building," says Skramstad. "We are leasing the majority of it and sharing it with two small airplanes. Those are an inspiration to our employees, engineers and customers who come to train here."
