What is Qualification, Inspection, and Testing? Qualification, inspection, and testing are critical processes aimed at ensuring the reliability, performance, and compliance of engineering products or systems. These processes involve assessing and validating the design, manufacturing, and functionality of various components, materials, or entire systems. These processes help identify potential issues, weaknesses, or deficiencies early in the development or manufacturing stages, allowing for necessary improvements, adjustments, or corrective actions. Ultimately, qualification and testing contribute to delivering safe, reliable, and high‑quality engineering solutions that meet industry standards and customer needs.
Why Portsmouth Aviation for Qualification, Inspection, and Testing? Portsmouth Aviation’s long-standing history in engineering services means we only output the highest quality products.
Qualification, inspection, and testing are essential parts of this process and our experience in the defence and aerospace sectors equip us with an expansive set of approvals and testing equipment.

OUR TESTING SERVICES
4 I PORTSMOUTH AVIATION
Our company takes pride in its comprehensive inspection capabilities, strategically located within two temperature-controlled dedicated inspection rooms. The primary machine shop inspection facility houses two advanced hexagon CMM machines.
To support our in-house design and manufacturing activities, we have an onsite mechanical test facility. This facility, managed by a qualified and experienced test engineer, can perform static testing of up to 30 tons. While primarily intended for our own needs, we can also accommodate outside subcontracted testing. If required, we offer the generation of comprehensive inspection and test reports, including First Article reports in accordance with AS9102 and specific dimensional reporting, on a subcontract basis. Our commitment to quality extends throughout our operations, backed by state-of-the-art inspection and testing facilities manned by a highly skilled team. To support our metal plating operations, we have an onsite laboratory that conducts solution analysis and salt spray testing. Furthermore, a dedicated Quality Engineer is embedded within these departments, also providing coverage for our painting and powder coating facilities.
One of these machines boasts on-board laser scanning capabilities, in addition to the traditional touch probing functionality. For enhanced measurement accuracy of complex and large shapes, we have a dedicated inspection bay equipped with a cutting-edge 3D laser scanner. This scanner enables the generation of virtual images for precise comparison with associated CAD models. It also offers the convenience of reverse engineering functionality. In addition to our CMMs and laser scanner, we have two optical measuring machines located in temperature-controlled facilities. These machines excel in accurate and rapid measurements, primarily catering to 2D parts. Likewise, our welding and fabrication departments benefit from the expertise of qualified and experienced Quality Engineers and Technicians. We even have on-site Level 2 and Level 3 NDT inspectors to ensure the highest quality standards.
