Aerospace NDT

Morgan Ward NDT have been inspecting aircraft for almost fifty years. During that time, we’ve worked on light aircraft, business and executive jets, helicopters, military fighter jets, mainstream airlines and multinational carriers.

Over more than half a century, we have had the privilege of working with various aircraft operators around the world. We have long-standing partnerships with maintenance and overhaul organisations (MROs) as well as working closely with a diverse range of approved suppliers to the international aircraft industry.

Aircraft on Ground

Morgan Ward NDT have an excellent record of quick response NDT support in Aircraft On Ground (AOG) situations. We have always known that sudden circumstances require rapid response times. That’s why all of our offices can be contacted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
