The results of applying three nondestructive testing techniques to the inspection of parts of a new Russian TVS-2DTS airplane made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic are presented. A basic technique implemented in workshop conditions implements optical stimulation of inspected parts. The usefulness of ultrasonic infrared thermography combined with laser vibrometry in the evaluation of parts with complicated geometry is illustrated. Samples with artificial and real defects have been tested in workshop conditions.
