License to Fly

Achieve type or supplemental certification on time while driving costs out.

Innovation in Aerospace and Defense comes with a cost, as the increased complexity of aircraft (increased use of composites, more advanced electrical systems, broader use of global suppliers, greater personalization, etc.) makes it more challenging for aerospace Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), suppliers and governmental agencies to certify aircraft and ensure passenger safety.

Today's certification process is a highly fragmented process that lacks a single version of the truth between engineering and certification organizations, as well as with aviation authorities and operators. This results in a highly inefficient and costly process with little reuse from one program to another. The result is not only the risk of delayed programs but limits the potential for innovation in the industry.

The License to Fly industry solution automates and simplifies the certification process to drive out costs while ensuring aircraft safety for on-time delivery.
