Gore To Gain ODA Approval
The FAA has announced its intent to award Gore Design Completions (GDC, Booth No. 2944) an Organization Designation Authorization approval in the fourth quarter 2009. The ODA designation will allow GDC, with FAA oversight, to issue special airworthiness certificates, standard airworthiness certificates and supplemental type certificates, approving all modifications made to an aircraft while at the company’s San Antonio facilities. “This authorization from the FAA will give GDC additional flexibility and efficiency and demonstrates a high level of trust that has been formed between GDC and the FAA,” said COO Ron Soret. GDC is an independent completion and refurbishment center specializing in providing executive/VIP and head-of-state interiors for narrow- and widebody aircraft.
