INTEGRATED IN-SERVICE SUPPORT SOLUTIONS
A LEADER IN AIRWORTHINESS AND CERTIFICATION
L3 MAS has a thorough understanding of airworthiness processes and can quickly develop a low-risk plan to achieve airworthiness certification minimizing the risk of delays and rework. Certification of complex aerospace projects is an area of high risk, both for schedule and cost. Successful management of this risk requires an experienced and well-coordinated engineering team.
Our broad experience covers both military and civil certifications, and we have unique experience in projects requiring combinations of overlapping military and civil certifications, including certification of installations containing commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment. Our projects have involved civil transport category, restricted category and special mission certifications as well as military certifications with several authorities, including Transport Canada (TC), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (HKCAD).
Our expertise covers certification from start to finish. We manage the process efficiently with attention to program risk and appropriate mitigation, including:
- Definition of certification basis
- Development of compliance plan
- Coordination of engineering team
- Liaison and interaction with airworthiness authorities
- Compliance demonstration
- Issue papers
In addition, L3 MAS, as the prime contractor supporting the CC-150 Polaris fleet, has delegated military airworthiness authority similar to a civil Air Operator Certificate (AOC). The CC-150 Polaris fleet is used by the Canadian government for high-profile missions including VVIP transport.
WE SAVE TIME AND MONEY, AND REDUCE RISK, WITHOUT COMPROMISING AIRWORTHINESS
L3 MAS has been a Transport Canada accredited Design Approval Organization (DAO) since 1997 and has one of the largest non-OEM airworthiness organizations in Canada.
