IAMA introduces first advisory member to the alliance

Independent Aircraft Modifier Alliance (IAMA) has said that aviation supplier Euro-Composites has signed a letter of intent to join as IAMA’s first advisory member.

Euro-Composites, a leading parts supplier and EASA 21J design organisation in the aviation aftermarket, has operations in Luxembourg, Germany and the United States.

IAMA, which was launched in early April by EAD Aerospace, Envoy Aerospace, Etihad Airways Engineering and Lufthansa Technik, advocates for trustworthy STCs (Supplemental Type Certificate) in the aviation retrofit market.

Rolf Mathias Alter, Euro-Composites CEO, said: “Our recent achievement as a design Organisation (EASA Part 21J Certification) was an important milestone for us, and becoming an Advisory Member of IAMA is another key step in our business strategy.

“With our extensive interiors, machined parts and panels, we are joining IAMA to help advance STC quality. Bringing our valuable know-how, manufacturing capabilities and R&D resources to the alliance will benefit current and future IAMA members and more importantly, aircraft owners and operators.” 

Once IAMA is a legal entity, at the end of 2019, it will be open to all aviation market participants including aircraft manufacturers, airlines, suppliers and lessors. IAMA offers three primary types of paid memberships: full, advisory and basic.

Members have access to specific benefits depending upon their role in the aviation ecosystem, and their membership level, the organisation says.

Nicole Noack, head of IAMA, added: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Euro-Composites in its new role as an Advisory member of IAMA. It is gratifying that over a short period of time, our message of transparency, openness, independence and quality resonates with leading aviation industry providers.”
