BONDING AND SHIELDING
Bonding Bonding is the process of electrically connecting the various metallic parts of an aircraft to form one single electric connection. That is, there will be a very low resistance path from any one part of the structure to any other part. This is often referred to as the aircraft ground and connects all electrical circuits to the negative voltage of the battery or alternator. When the metal structure of the aircraft is used as an electrical ground (negative connection), the aircraft is said to use a single wire electrical system. Bonding also helps to reduce radio interference; to decrease the probability of lightning damage to such aircraft elements as control hinges; and to prevent the bu…
