FAA Design Approvals

The growth of aircraft manufacturing, along with enhanced regulatory requirements over the last 20 years, have made it increasingly difficult for many peer organizations to obtain Supplemental Type Certifications (STCs) and Parts Manufacturing Approvals (PMAs). However, our design team has the extensive knowledge and experience regarding the certification of avionics systems for both U.S. and E.U. Regulatory Agencies, as well as numerous Supplemental Type Certifications, internationally and domestically. We have also developed STCs for a number of companies, including Rockwell Collins, which have resulted in Parts Manufacturing Approvals. Because of this unique level of expertise, aircraft manufacturers, as well as other design companies, often contact our certified experts for special consultations.
