EASA Part 21G is an approval to manufacture aircraft parts and appliances in conformity with approved data. This approval from EASA is directly related to the company’s development and building of front row monuments, which are installed in business class aircraft cabins.

“This approval is a great achievement for AAT Composites, as it demonstrates the capabilities of our team to produce to the highest quality standard,” said Christian Walser, general manager at AAT Composites.

The EASA Part 21G is the highest certification a company can have in the aerospace industry. EASA, in tandem with the U.S.-based Federal Aviation Administration, is the regulator with high safety standards for aircraft certification.

“We are quite proud of the recent strides made by the team at AAT Composites and this approval is another step towards expanding their competencies,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO of Recaro Aircraft Seating.
