Hi Edmond,

I guess it depends on the organisation. In Canada, the aircraft company that I know of have their NDT Department as part of the maintenance or technical direction as you call it. The reason being is that NDT is used as a maintenance tool. The technician performs an inspection in accordance with an Airworthiness Directive, a Service Bulletin or a maintenance schedule. Basically the same as any other maintenance operation. Furthermore, your aircraft are already in service.

On the other hand, an aircraft manufacturer like Boeing, Airbus or Bell Helicopter for exemple may have their NDT Department as pert of Quality Assurance. In this situation, their function would be to insure the manufacturing meet the company standard of quality.

I hope this answer your question...

Hi
Concerning your question
It depends of the system which is applied in your company
One part of companies have NDT in Maintenance hangar and in workshop and under Technical direction (As example - our company) but another part preferred to make NDT under QAD, or sometimes NDT - it is just independent contractor and aircompany have onsite only representative of NDT company.
Anyway - it is decided by top level and QAD manager of company
