What can we do for you!

Service. We support the design, development and certification of aircraft structures, interiors and payload systems, and the interfaces and integration for commercial aircraft, VIP aircraft, helicopters and novel UAM or eVTOL aircraft configurations. With our EASA Design Organization Approval (DOA) we also provide Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs), minor and major modifications to aircraft interiors.

Type of work. We take responsibility for complete work packages for modifications or initial design, with our EASA Design Organization or as subcontractor, or provide the experienced lead engineers, specialists and compliance verification engineers (CVEs) to enhance your team.

Customers. We work both for OEMs and suppliers responsible for the design, as for airline operators and maintenance and completion centers, operating, maintaining or modifying these systems.
