Committed to quality

At the end of 2016, Latécoère announced that its Design Organisation Approval (DOA) extension had been granted by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) within the framework of extending the scope of its activities.

The extension applies to minor modifications, major modifications (STC: Supplemental Type Certificate), and aircraft repairs (“large aircraft”). It therefore includes electrical systems, avionics systems, structures, doors and hydromechanical systems.

This Design Organisation Approval is an official recognition of the Group’s technical expertise and know-how in embedded systems integration. In particular, it means that the Latécoère Group can integrate embedded equipment (Cockpit Door Surveillance Systems, Landscape Camera Systems, etc.) and thus provide its customers with all-inclusive solutions.
