Replacement or modification aircraft parts, manufactured in the US, cannot be fitted without Part Manufacturing Approval (PMA), which is issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). PMA approved parts need EU/UK approval in order to be integrated into European/UK registered aircraft. Member states and the UK have concluded bilateral agreements with the US for the acceptance of PMA parts. This is enshrined in the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Decision No. 2007/003/C.
PMA components are developed to the same standards as their European/UK approved counterparts, whilst often providing a competitively priced alternative. 21JAeroDesign is able to provide CAA approval of PMA parts, in order to facilitate integration of PMA parts for European and UK aircraft. We offer a comprehensive process of acceptance, approval and integration. Clients are able to take advantage of the cost saving provided, and are provided with full documentation demonstrating compliance.
