Glass breakthrough made with amendment to EASA certification

With the release of Amendment 19 to EASA’s certification specifications for large aircraft (CS25), AeroGlass mirrors and transparencies from AviationGlass & Technology (AGT) can be installed as minor modifications, without requiring additional certification or STCs. The new acceptable means of compliance (AMC) was based on AGT’s certification strategy.

The AMC and certification for replacing lavatory mirrors and transparent glass parts also applies in the USA, because of EASA’s bilateral aviation safety agreement with the FAA.

AGT was represented by aerospace engineering consulting services firm ADSE during the project. “AGT offers the world’s only certified ultra-thin and lightweight glass product for aircraft interiors, and has played a key role in this breakthrough, enabling the easy introduction of glass back into the cabin,” said Ron van Baaren, managing director at ADSE.

“During the project with EASA, AGT worked rigorously to ensure utmost safety at all times, while offering airlines and private jet owners the possibility to choose glass over plastic for striking design and exceptional luxury.”

“This new regulation is a significant milestone for the industry’s transition to lightweight glass inside commercial and private aircraft as it removes long waiting times and the high costs previously associated with the certification of glass as an alternative to polycarbonate products,” said John Rietveldt, CEO at AGT.

“With immediate effect, airlines and private jet owners all over the world can simply swap out their scratched and cloudy plastic products with crystal clear, beautifully colored and shaped AeroGlass creations to create a superior onboard experience.”

AGT says AeroGlass products are as much as 50% thinner and 25% lighter than their polycarbonate counterparts, as well as being scratch- and UV-resistant.
