The FAA will award completions center Gore Design Completions an organization designation authorization (ODA) before year-end. This designation permits Gore, with FAA oversight, to issue FAA certification approvals at its San Antonio facility.

Once the ODA is in effect, Gore can issue special airworthiness certificates, standard airworthiness certificates and supplemental type certificates approving all modifications made to an aircraft while at Gore for completion. The company offers custom aircraft interiors, particularly for head-of-state and VIP aircraft, including the latest widebodies.
