Risk management firm Det Norske Veritas has registered Columbia Helicopters to the EN/AS9110 aerospace quality standard. The certification will allow Columbia to increase its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) work, as several OEMs require maintenance organizations to obtain third-party registration. Columbia becomes one of around 350 companies to receive AS9110 certification, with less than 100 of those in the United States. Chris Hankland, director of quality, explains that in addition to meeting requirements for ISO 9001:2008 and EN/JISQ/AS9100:2004, Columbia has “met the additional EN/AS9110:2003 requirements to include additional safety, reliability and airworthiness for both military and commercial aircraft MRO.” (From February 2011 Rotorcraft Report)
