Euro-Composites has signed a letter of intent to become the first member to join the advisory board of the Independent Aircraft Modifier Alliance (IAMA), whose founding members include EAD Aerospace, Envoy Aerospace, Etihad Airways Engineering and Lufthansa Technik.
The composite parts manufacturer will be involved in outlining key initiatives for the alliance as it works to address the challenges that customers face with Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) solutions.
“It is important for IAMA to have a broad panel of different stakeholders in our alliance to develop best practices and solutions to the customer’s advantage,” an alliance spokesperson said. “IAMA is proud to have a market leader like Euro-Composites among the members in this early stage and will benefit from its large experience as a supplier of composite parts inside and outside the aircraft cabin.”
Since announcing its launch at Aircraft Interiors Expo in April, IAMA has defined a membership model and kicked-off various working groups, the spokesperson added.
