With a new year, comes a new certification for the Dornier Seastar CD2

Sonderflughafen Oberpfaffenhofen, Weßling, Germany: January 18th, 2017 

Dornier Seawings GmbH has acquired its Design Organization Approval (DOA) from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) after twelve months of investigation. The project plan was achieved in an on-time manner and with highest marks of audit quality.

Ambitions were high, but thanks to full preparedness, Dornier Seawings was successful in achieving its goals. Federico Marziali, Head of Quality Management at DSG is proud of the team: “the EASA staff mentioned to us during both of our audits, that this was the best quality they had seen for first certification ever conducted in an aircraft company.” In return for the excellent preparation made by DSG, EASA granted the company a full-scale approval with the scope of complete small aircraft that includes all privileges applied for by the company with an unlimited duration. The DOA certificate is seen as a huge asset for Dornier Seawings and a major milestone for the Seastar CD2 program.

Now, the team has already begun the assessment procedure with the Luftfahrt Bundesamt, (the national civil aviation authority of Germany) for the next certification, the Production Organisation Approval (POA), another cornerstone approval for entire Seastar CD2 program.

Being an international company composed of Chinese and German partners, Dornier Seawings has the unique advantage of understanding a broader aviation market. Today, the company is working harder and faster than ever, to bring its customers the Dornier Seastar CD2, the world’s most advanced amphibious aircraft.
