CDG Gets EASA Design Organization Approval
The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has given CDG’s UK Interior Design Center design organization approval (DOA). Under the scope of the EASA approval, CDG is authorized to provide engineering design services for changes and minor repairs to large aircraft for cabin interiors. This includes galleys, seats and other interiors equipment that does not affect the primary airframe structure.
The EASA DOA enables CDG to define the classification of a proposed cabin interiors change as either “minor” or “major.” For any changes or repairs that are classified as minor, CDG can provide direct approval; changes or repairs classified as major will require a supplemental type certificate from the EASA.
“The EASA approval enables CDG to act as a trusted partner to help our customers navigate through the entire cycle of the design, certification and delivery processes for large aircraft-interior configuration changes and modifications,” said COO Mike Parven.
