Reinforcing its position as a global leader in the aviation aftermarket, AvAir recently earned ISO 9001:2008/AS9120A certification, as awarded through the Aircraft Suppliers Association Certification Body (ASACB).

ISO 9001:2008 certification is an international designation assuring airlines, OEMS, MROs and stockists that AvAir meets world-class specifications ensuring the quality, safety and efficiency of its products, services and systems. The AS9120A standard is the stockist /distribution certification recognized world-wide by OEMS, MROs and the commercial aviation industry.

According to Monte Thiesse, AvAir Director of Quality Assurance, the organization went through the certification process to achieve both ISO 9001:2008 and AS9120A certification covering training for purchasing, including accurate part tracing requirements.

“Not only did AvAir undergo the additional audits for the 9120 certification, we completed the certification process in less than six months with zero findings on the final audit,” says Thiesse.
