Abstract : Avionic manufacturing and environmental conditions generate corrosions and/or make easier the action of corrosion in various part of an avionic system. This paper deals with a brief survey of environmental conditions in the avionic field, how to reproduce them in accordance with norms and which associated problems could occur. All part of an avionic system are successively examined: housing box, printed circuit boards, hybrid and integrated circuits. For each part, examples and solutions are given.
