AAT Composites, a South Africa-based designer and manufacturer of composite parts for the aviation and automotive industries, has been granted Production Organisation Approval (POA) in compliance with the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA Part 21G).
Part 21G is an approval from EASA for companies outside EU Member States to manufacture aircraft parts and appliances in conformity with approved data. This approval from EASA is directly related to the company’s development and building of front-row monuments, which are installed in business-class aircraft cabins.
The controlling shareholder of AAT Composites is Recaro Aircraft Seating, a company which supplies custom front-row monuments for cabins such as Iberia’s A350 business class. Dr Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating said of the Part 21G approval: “We are quite proud of the recent strides made by the team at AAT Composites and this approval is another step towards expanding their competencies”.
