About Aviation Corrosion Challenge
An Official US Navy mobile application, produced by the Navy PMW 240 Program.
The Aviation Corrosion Challenge application uses a gaming scenario with score-based challenges to help Sailors and other users identify the types, forms, and characteristics of aircraft corrosion. Based on NAVAIR Instruction 01-1A-509 1-4, the app provides visual identification of corrosion, information on methods for removing and treating corrosion, and information on the materials used in corrosion prevention.
Using photographs and texts, the game randomly generates elements associated with corrosion control, including types of corrosion, corrosion effects on alloys, aircraft cleaning, corrosion preventative compounds, and sealants. During the game, the user must answer multiple questions within a set amount of time. Selecting the correct answer before the timer runs out awards the user bonus points.
To enhance learning, the game allows a review of questions at the end of each challenge. The app also includes an achievement section that unlocks trophies when various levels of points are reached or the user completes specific challenges.
The Aviation Corrosion Challenge app is comprehensive, easy to use and offers public content only -- no authentication/authorization required. Download yours today!
