Certification

Every aircraft that is operated in controlled airspace requires a permit. This ensures safety and reliability. For an aviation system to be approved, certain rules must be taken into account in the design process. The system must also correspond to certain certification standards in its properties. It makes sense to involve approval specialists such as APUS in the design process from the beginning to avoid unnecessary iterations. APUS achieved several type certificates or supplementary type certificates together with its customers.
