HAECO Cabin Solutions celebrates 20 years of ODA approval

HAECO Cabin Solutions (HCS), a division of HAECO Americas and a business unit within the HAECO Group, is celebrating its 20th year as an FAA-approved provider with Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) – including the ODA’s preceding authority, Designated Alteration Station (DAS).

Holding ODA approval enables HCS to issue both design and manufacturing approvals for interior projects and products for customers, the aim being to optimize time between prototype testing and production or installation.

HCS first received DAS authority in 1995. The approval was renamed by the FAA and transitioned to ODA in 2009. HCS has developed more than 300 supplemental type certificates (STCs) and parts manufacturing authority (PMA) supplements under its ODA on projects including passenger-to-freighter conversions, crew rest installations, avionics upgrades, IFE installations and complete aircraft interior reconfigurations.

“Our ODA allows us to deliver unique, valuable benefits to our customers,” said Jose Pevida, vice president of engineering at HCS. “Coupled with our comprehensive on-site testing and substantiation facilities, we can deliver complex projects more quickly and provide our customers flexibility in meeting their project timelines. Over the past 20 years as an ODA and DAS holder, I believe we have earned the confidence of regulatory authorities such as the FAA and EASA, and we have delighted airline customers with high quality based on a standard of safety embraced by our whole team.”

HCS certifies all major aircraft systems and compliance for modification programs related to structures, avionics, electrical and mechanical systems, interior substantiation including flammability, continued airworthiness documentation, and fatigue and damage tolerance. In addition to its FAA ODA, HCS also has experience working with civil aviation authorities in other parts of the world, achieving regulatory approval for aircraft modification programs.
