    Default A. I. S. Inspection Duties?

    I have searched high and low for this one, but still can not find an explanation. The 1961 AFL shows the following against an Engineering officer's name: "Z, qualified in A. I. S. Inspection Duties". Can someone please decypher what A.I.S. is?

    TIA

    In Canada, the Aeronautical Inspection people were usually placed in manufacturers or overhaul facilities, as the government's eyes on site for work on aircraft or parts.
