Lei Yue - Vice President, NDT Service Centre, HAECO Xiamen

Published date: 24 May 2022


An aircraft is an extremely complex system made up of more than a million parts and components., where even a minor problem within the system could potentially lead to an incident. Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a way to detect and evaluate flaws in materials and is an important way of ensuring the structural integrity and airworthiness of an aircraft. I am proud to be one of the team of NDT experts at HAECO that safeguards the airworthiness of aircraft that undergo maintenance at our facilities.

I graduated from university in 1998, majoring in physics and electronic technology. I was intrigued by the aircraft engineering industry, which was booming at that time, and HAECO Xiamen stood out. HAECO had a definite advantage with its capability on a wide range of aircraft and it gave me a wider platform for career development as I started out.


HAECO’s training programmes offered me opportunities to go abroad and learn from overseas experts in aircraft engineering. I’m now very proud to have played a role in the development of NDT standards for the aviation and aerospace sectors in the Chinese Mainland. My team took part in an NDT project to develop a more feasible scheme to ensure continuous airworthiness for the Chinese aviation industry.

"Excellence is one of the key HAECO values to embrace and it will bring you more opportunities for growth and promotion."

We all value teamwork at HAECO and I enjoy passing on my experience to up-and-coming trainee technicians as a means of contributing to the future of the aviation industry. Excellence is one of the key HAECO values to embrace and it will bring you more opportunities for growth and promotion. Keep learning and sharpening your skills, and you will stand out from the crowd!
