Deal Grows Aircraft Modification And Certification Capabilities
Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) has announced the acquisition of 3S Certification and 3S Engineering of Wichita, KS. The privately owned 3S Certification holds an FAA authorized Organization Designation Authorization (ODA).
Since its inception in 2006, the company has provided subject matter experts specializing in avionics and cabin equipment modifications and certification. In the last two years, the company has expanded to include an ODA which provides the authority for approval of Supplemental Type Certificates for aircraft modifications. The Wichita Eagle reports that the companies have been given the green light to obtain avionics and wi-fi certifications for Bombardier, Gulfstream, and Hawker Beechcraft airplanes, among others.
"Adding 3S Engineering as a stand-alone operation within our business portfolio is a perfect fit for our aircraft modification business areas," said Eren Ozmen, chairman and president, Sierra Nevada Corporation. "Their team's Designated Engineering Representatives and ODA support for all disciplines meshes well with our world-class, manned-aircraft modification capabilities."
3S Engineering will work closely with SNC's Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance and Integrated Mission Systems business areas, while continuing to service existing and new customers. The company will operate as wholly owned subsidiary of SNC. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
