HAECO Cabin Solutions, headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA, has expanded its Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) team with the addition of Meredith Frazier. Frazier is qualified to work as a cabin safety ODA unit member, and is the first female engineer to be so authorised by the FAA. This designation allows her to review and approve drawings of parts and/or part alterations to witness tests, among other duties, ensuring all interior products on commercial aircraft comply with FAA standards.
Jose Pevida, SVP of engineering and product sevelopment at HAECO Cabin Solutions said, “We expanded our ODA team to better serve our customers and to ensure the highest levels of safety are implemented. Expanding our ability to certify, test and approve the installation of our products increases our bandwidth, and gives our customers more scheduling flexibility, shorter turnaround times and less downtime for their aircraft.”
