AES awarded EASA and UK CAA Part 21J DOA


The Shannon, Ireland office of Aerospace Engineering Solutions (AES) has received full EASA Part 21J Design Organisation Approval (DOA) (EASA.21J.722 & UK.21J.0036). This approval complements the company’s UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Part 21J Design Organisation Approval.

AES believes this approval structure will provide a transparent Supplemental Type Certification (STC) and modification process following the UK’s departure from the EU (Brexit). This approach is intended to avoid any complication and risk associated to validation of STCs, repairs and modifications between the respective regulatory bodies within the UK and EU.

This twin approval arrangement will give customers confidence that they can react quickly to the opportunities of a new aviation landscape, says AES.

Andrew Dolby, director of Aerospace Engineering Solutions, stated, “The company believes having both approvals will enable their customers to leverage the existing strong bilateral agreements between EASA and national aviation authorities.”
