    The same way it affects everything else in the electronics world. Aircraft designers and EE's that design such components have to work through a lot of testing to make sure their grounding/bonding is sufficient to prevent that kind of damage. There is a responsibility to the handlers to maintain common ESD practices as well when replacing or maintaining them.
