Ensuring the airworthiness of CarlisleIT products is just as important as designing and building them. That is why we have gathered a certification team that includes in-house Federal Aviation Administration Designated Engineering Representatives (FAA DERs) to generate the appropriate reports and documentation required  to ensure compliance with FAA and aerospace industry airworthiness standards. CarlisleIT’s team of certification professionals also takes a proactive role in working with regulatory commissions such as the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), Civil Aviation Administration China (CAAC), Transport Canada and other aerospace governing bodies around the world.

PMA/EPA Production

CarlisleIT offers production of aircraft parts and modification kits under Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) and European Part Approval (EPA). Customers can receive a FAA form 8130-3 or EASA form 1 with products that have STC approval and for which CarlisleIT has been delegated manufacturing approval. This allows our customers to directly install products in STC approved configurations without further review by regulators. To make the process of approving serial production products seamless for our customers, CarlisleIT has FAA Designated Manufacturing Inspection Representatives (DMIRs) and Designated Airworthiness Representatives (DARs) on staff.
