Dual Release: FAA & EASA Certified
Aircraft Specialties, Inc. is a Part-145 repair station certified by the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). But we're also certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). This means we can issue 8130-3 certifications for our products and services that are recognized by both the FAA and the EASA. So, how does that impact our clients?
The dual release portion refers to the FAA Form 8130-3 used during return-to-service and carries both authorizations from the FAA and EASA.
To enhance our services and remain competitive, ASI received its EASA certification in October of 1996. As reported by our Chief Inspector, Brian Erisman, this certification grants the authorization to certify articles for aircraft registered within the European Union just as we would for US registered aircraft through the FAA. This means our clients are able to provide products and services to their clients overseas as well as in the states. This also allows ASI to provide it's products and services to clients around the world. Our dual release capability is beneficial for us, our clients and their clients.
