The scope of work of SII Deutschland’s Design Organization Approval (DOA) according to Part 21, formerly limited to aeroplanes, has now been extended to small and large rotorcrafts.
This extension is based on a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the helicopter type EC135, issued this past 27. August 2019, following from a brilliant final team spurt in connection with the project VABENE. It applies to the technical areas Avionics, Electrical Systems, Structures as well as Flight Characteristics.
Equally, SII Deutschland is now entitled to approve cabin repairs for helicopters.
This approval sets the cornerstone for an even wider range of services and activities in the context of EASA and GCAA.
