The FAA has granted an air agency certificate to New Berlin, Wis.-based Emteq. As a certified repair station, the company is authorized to issue Return to Service tags and FAA Forms 8130-3 as well as 337s for Emteq-designed and -manufactured Arinc 404/600 trays, coax cable assemblies, LED dome, reading, wash and strip lighting.

Emteq specializes in integrated interior and exterior LED lighting products, design engineering and avionics installation kits for aircraft navigation, communication and entertainment systems for the civilian and military aviation markets, including helicopters. 

According to John Themmes, Emteq’s repair station manager, “Repair station certification allows us to offer the next level of integrated, comprehensive service for our customers. The greatest benefit is that the aircraft owner/operator can come directly to us for repairs on items that are on our approved capabilities list.”

Emteq’s repair station status allows repairs in-house with a limited airframe rating to repair in the field. The company also recently received FAA STC and EASA certification approvals for numerous installations on various Airbus, Boeing and Saab aircraft. Several more applications are pending approval for installation on Saab and CASA C-212 turboprops.
