STC ODA Certification

In July, 2012, Pro Star Aviation was appointed as an FAA STC ODA under ODA number ODA-833063-NE. With oversight from the FAA’s Boston Aircraft Certification Office (ACO), our STC ODA is authorizated to make findings of compliance to FAA regulations and to issue STCs with minimal oversight by the FAA.

Authorized to to approve;

  • Design data
  • Analysis and test plans
  • Witness compliance testing
Authorized to issue (in conjunction with STC projects):
  • Airworthiness certificates
  • Special flight permits

STC Development

The process for STC development can be complex. For each STC project we provide a project manager to oversee the entire project and to manage every task and critical phase to better ensure nothing gets missed and the shortest timeline for STC development is realized.

Our ODA can partner with your engineering team for STC approvals through a collaborative, integrated process.

Our Partnering Advantage

The biggest advantage of using Pro Star Aviation’s ODA is access to the ODA staff to complete your project within your time frame. With the addition of 'off-site facilities procedures' into our ODA Procedures Manual in 2015, Pro Star Aviation's ODA can now perform certification work on aircraft located in approved facilities around the world, not only at our facility in New Hampshire.
