I have some questions regarding these type of modification works. I am an aeronautical engineer by training, but not practicing. I know some aircraft design theory and stuff, but I do not have experience with what actually goes on in the shops. I would like to know more about what goes on when an aircraft is put on one such PTF program. What are some of the things that are done to the aircraft with regards to the main airframe structure? These kind of work, I would presume, would involve some CAD designing and probably analysis to determine the safety factors. Are maintenance engineers involve in such work or would these by the domain of aerospace/aeronautical engineers?
