AviationManuals Plays Integral Role in Development of Streamlined FAA LOA Approval Process
AviationManuals, a provider of manual development services and safety management system (SMS) software, is working closely with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), manufacturers and training organizations as a key stakeholder in the development of a new, streamlined letter of authorization (LOA) process for Part 91 operators acquiring new aircraft.
“We have been collaborating with industry leaders to develop a more optimized process for obtaining LOAs,” says Clément Meersseman, senior advisor of International Procedures, AviationManuals. “With our extensive knowledge and expertise, AviationManuals is playing an integral role in helping to create the new standards and procedures for obtaining these essential documents.”
Up until now, the LOA approval process could be cumbersome with labor-intensive reviews taking weeks or months. The new LOA Streamline process is a simplified approach that saves the FAA and operators time and money in obtaining authorizations.
AviationManuals was the first procedures provider approved by the FAA for this program. This achievement further supports the company’s mission of making it easier to be a better, safer operator.
“We are extremely proud to have played such an important role in developing this new streamlined process,” says Mark Baier, CEO of AviationManuals. “The fact that we were the very first procedures provider approved to participate by the FAA is a strong testament to our team. We look forward to the official roll out later this year.”
The new process is currently in beta testing with several operators purchasing new aircraft. Program leaders are hopeful that full guidance will go into draft by the end of this year.
