Jet Aviation St. Louis is now authorized to manufacture and sell individual parts to customers and suppliers under the parts manufacturer approval (PMA) issued by the FAA. The PMA means Jet Aviation St. Louis can manufacture and stock parts that are needed frequently and sell them to customers who can install the parts themselves.
“PMA authorization enables Jet Aviation St. Louis to provide parts to customers, suppliers and even other aviation service centers as they are needed, reducing downtime and costs for our customers,” said Stan Wierciszewski, senior manager, quality. “We began by manufacturing high-wear items to support aircraft that were previously completed at Jet Aviation St. Louis and now we can progress to including additional parts that we will stock for our customers’ convenience.”
All of the parts will carry a custom-designed stamp identifying them as manufactured by Jet Aviation St. Louis under the PMA rating by the FAA. The stamp will be applied to each part, or, if the part is too small, to the packaging.
