Welcome to our third Newsletter.
ACD Consultants was created to support the aviation community with experienced FAA certification consultants. It was built on the foundation of trusted individuals providing service to the aviation community for over 35 years.
ACD Conference 2020 originally scheduled for May has been postponed based on the health recommendations and travel restrictions due to COVID-19. We can either issue refunds OR keep your place for our event we are planning for the fall. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you would like to do. In the coming months we will be in contact with you about the conference and additional resources during this developing situation.
Last quarter engineering staff and all ACD directors spoke by teleconference with IAMA, the Independent Aircraft Modifier Alliance, which is a MRO conglomeration organizing to promote common standards for the documentation and quality of STCs and improve documentation and communication between customers and owners. Soon they will release and walkthrough their “Rulebook”. With ACD’s vast aircraft modification and VIP aircraft overhaul knowledge, our team introduced our distinct DER, STC, and software capabilities, and will continue high level conversations in the next months
