Aerospace Engineering Solutions (AES Global), a UK and EU aerospace design and certification organisation based in Essex, has been awarded an EASA Supplement Type Certificate (STC) for Zero passenger configuration.
This EASA STC (No.10070986) applies to Boeing 737 and Boeing 757 variant aircraft types and allows the operator and lessors to fly aircraft legally with a Zero passenger configuration. This STC is based on the latest EASA guidance regarding the approval of Incomplete Passenger Cabins as detailed in proposed EASA Certification Memorandum CM-CS-010-001.
Anton Heissig, director and head of design at AES Global said, “Receiving this STC has allowed AES Global to respond to our customers request in offering the flexibility of flying their aircraft with an incomplete cabin. The STC was achieved successfully within a very challenging timeline and allows us to continue the evolution of the STC with expanded applicability to encompass additional aircraft types.”
