Sam Kantimathi


Through my company, FATIGUE CONCEPTS, I have been serving the airworthiness community worldwide for four decades. I teach and consult at the Airlines, Manufacturers like Boeing and Airbus, the Air Forces of the world along with Naval Aviation…, and the Regulators like the FAA, and CAA of many nations. My clients vary from fresh engineers to experts, mechanics and FAA / Transport Canada Aviation Safety Inspectors. Such wide exposure hones my devices to serve the airworthiness comunity by taking cues and best practices from multiple segments of our community.

​I actively participated in the very first FAA/ASNT sponsored Ageing aircraft conference in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania shortly after the Aloha Accident. I regularly attend International Committee on Aeronautical Fatigue, Aircraft Airworthiness and Sustainment Conference, ASTM, SAE, Australian AAS, Aging Aircraft Symposium… I have given workshops and plenary lectures in most of these conferences.
