CDG Gains EASA Design Organisation Approval
WELWYN GARDEN CITY, UK – September 12, 2013 – CDG, a Boeing company, has received Design Organisation Approval (DOA) from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The DOA certificate (Part 21, Section A, Subpart J) was awarded to CDG’s UK Interior Design Centre.
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. For changes or repairs classified as “major”, CDG will apply for a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from EASA.
CDG works directly with approved Production and Maintenance Organisations (POAs/MOAs), developing documentation with approved design data and design control in order to supply a complete design to delivery solution. CDG also offers technical documentation authoring services, and can apply the original interiors engineering design data to generate accurate technical publications to support aircraft maintenance and operations.
“This 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 interiors configuration changes and modifications,” said Mike Parven, chief operating officer for CDG. “Our customers can focus their time and energy on envisioning exactly what is wanted in the aircraft interior, and how it will be used after delivery.”
A large portion of CDG’s core competency in interiors and payload engineering resides in the UK; it was a strategic decision to leverage this UK facility capability to pursue the EASA DOA. CDG has an extensive engineering services talent pool across its UK, USA and India facilities to meet global customer support requirements for both commercial and VIP aircraft interiors.
