While in conversation with Bert Leijen, Manager Product Development at Fokker Services, we revealed how this department fosters innovation to create new products. Continuing this story, in this blog article we’re exploring what happens next. Our Engineering and Program Management teams work closely together to bring these solutions to life. In this blog article, learn more about the in-house STC design process, how we support operators with unique requirements, and how we troubleshoot any challenge.
A-Z Design Capabilities
As a former aircraft OEM and current Fokker aircraft type certificate (TC) holder, we have a unique place in our industry. With advanced knowledge of the complete aircraft, we create supplemental type certificates (STCs) entirely in-house for many aircraft systems, including flight handling, avionics, and aircraft cargo conversions. As part of the STC design process, our teams certify each modification, including the ground and flight testing. As a result, we deliver effective solutions and modification kits, complete with an Engineering Bulletin, supplemental manuals, part catalogue, and maintenance check interval recommendations.
