SPAES approved to produce aviation components
A certificate of release issued to SPAES proves that the products it manufactures are created in accordance with the approved design data and therefore suitable for installation in aircraft.

German Part 21J Design Organisation SPAES has received Part 21G Production Organisation approval, allowing it to manufacture and produce components according to aviation standards (Form 1). SPAES decided to establish an EASA Part 21G Production Organisation in response to increasing customer demand for the procurement and production of components according to these aviation standards. For certification of the Part 21G organisation it was accompanied by four reference projects, including a mounting bracket for the Hamilton T1 ventilator for the Airbus H145 helicopter.

“With the existing Part 21J Design Organisation and the new Part 21G Production Organisation approval, we can now offer our customers a complete package and thus cover the value chain from the idea to the production of a product,” says Nikolas Kares, head of production organisation.

As of now, SPAES not only manufactures its own products but also issues them with a certificate of conformity (EASA Form 1). This certificate of release proves that the product was manufactured in accordance with the approved design data and is therefore suitable for installation in aircraft.

“This is a positive and logical development for us,” adds SPAES founder and MD Joachim Schanz. “In order to reduce costs and effort, the offer of the design, approval and manufacturing of products and components from one source is becoming more and more important for our customers.”

The focus of the Part 21G Production Organisation is currently in the area of metal processing and assembly, composite manufacturing and wire harness production and will be gradually expanded to meet customer specific requirements.
