This gives our engineers first-hand knowledge of aircraft manufacturing and access to a wealth of collective knowledge, which is essential to solving complex aerospace challenges.

Fly Longer, Fly Safer

Our deep understanding of the entire scope of structural design and analysis is reflected in the superior operation and maintenance of the delivered aircraft. Our aftermarket services keep your aircraft up and flying longer. We also have the capabilities to assess the strength, reliability and safety of your aircraft and to ensure that it meets certification standards. Our strong regulatory relationships significantly streamline repair, modification and certification processes.

Our strong program management expertise is another factor that contributes to the success of your program. We combine an earned value management approach with lean engineering principles to drive high quality, increase productivity and reduce cost. Our extensive check cycle assures first-build quality on a regular basis. In fact, if there is a defect in our work we will correct it at our cost, not yours.
