Company Information

FACC Operations GmbH,a subsidiary of the publicly listed FACC AG,has
successfully concluded EASA certification and recently gained EASA Part 21 -
Subpart J - Design Organization Approval (DOA). This makes FACC an approved
Design Organization within the European aviation industry, authorized to
independently develop and approve designs for modifications and repairs.
 
Approval was granted bythe European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) after FACC, in
coordination with the Austrian Aviation Authority - Austro Control GmbH, had
demonstrated fulfillment of all the relevant requirements during the course of
the comprehensive approval process. With this approval it is now possible for
FACC to modify aircraft components, approve repair instructions and establish
and publish amendments to aircraft flight manuals. Approval was granted for CS-
23 normal, utility, aerobatic and commuter aeroplanes and CS-25 large
aeroplanes. As an approved Design Organization (DO), FACC is monitored by the
authorities and audited by Austro Control at regular intervals as well.
 
"I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to the whole FACC Design
Organization Team for this considerable achievement. Only through their many
years of experience and expertise in the field of aircraft design did we manage
to obtain this important approval as a Design Organization. My thanks also go to
the representatives of Austro Control, who supported us with expert advice
throughout the entire approval process," says a delighted Walter A. Stephan
about the successful certification, which marks the third EASA approval for FACC
alongside the company's existing approvals as a production and maintenance
organization. "This Design Organization Approval opens up new areas of the
aviation business for FACC. Not only our longstanding OEM customers but also
airlines themselves will benefit from us being able to directly offer them an
expanded range of services along the whole aircraft lifecycle, from design and
development to production and extending to maintenance and technical
publications," adds Hermann Filsegger, Head of Design Organization. FACC
commands extensive design and engineering expertise upon which the global
aircraft industry supplier has continuously built and expanded since its
foundation 25 years ago. A pool of highly qualified technicians and engineers
design and develop sophisticated turnkey solutions in advanced fiber-composite
technology which reduce aircraft weight and fuel consumption while
simultaneously increasing their efficiency, cost-effectiveness and environmental
compatibility.
