L-3 Wins ODA and 787 Mod Authority

 - August 6, 2013, 2:50 AM

L-3 Platform Integration has earned a four-year extension of its FAA organization designation authorization (ODA) and passed a biennial audit of its ODA-related process. It has also won FAA approval for modification of the composite-fuselage Boeing 787.

The FAA-granted ODA allows a center to issue certificates of airworthiness and supplemental type certificates as designees on behalf of the agency.

L-3’s aircraft modification center was one of the first to engage with Boeing on the 787. The Waco, Texas facility is working closely with Boeing to refine its approach to 787 executive interior completion work and is currently outfitting two 747-8s.
