[en] The reliability of aircraft inspection is of paramountimportance to safety of flights. Continuing airworthiness of air-craft structures is largely based upon the visual detection of smalldefects made by trained inspection personnel with expensive,critical and time consuming tasks. At this aim, Unmanned AerialVehicles (UAVs) can be used for autonomous inspections, aslong as it is possible to localize the target while flying aroundit and correct the position. This work proposes a solution todetect the airplane pose with regards to the UAVs position whileflying autonomously around the airframe at close range forvisual inspection tasks. The system works by processing imagescoming from an RGB camera mounted on board, comparingincoming frames with a database of natural landmarks whoseposition on the airframe surface is known. The solution has beentested in real UAV flight scenarios, showing its effectiveness inlocalizing the pose with high precision. The advantages of theproposed methods are of industrial interest since we remove manyconstraint that are present in the state of the art solutions.
