Ontic is appointed ODA by the FAA

Ontic has received FAA Organization Designation Authorization or "ODA" for FAR part 21 TSO / PMA.

Ontic joins an elite group of OEMs which includes Gulfstream, Cessna, and Bell Helicopter in achieving the ODA designation.

The ODA is appointed under 14 CFR part 183 subpart D which addresses all FAA delegation to organizations. The FAA believes ODA will increase the efficiency of government oversight. Under this system, FAA can provide "oversight without having to do everything personally, it also allows the FAA to concentrate its resources on the most safety-critical matters.

"Achieving ODA status is the result of a great deal of work by Ontic and the FAA that shows a commitment to safety and efficiency," said Jon Margrave, Ontic’s director of Quality whose group administers the ODA process. "The FAA rules mandate that delegated organizations demonstrate a very high level of integrity and experience, this designation reflects the FAA’s trust in Ontic’s internal procedures. This is a responsibility that Ontic takes very seriously."

"Ontic’s sole focus is the support under license or acquisition of non-core, legacy products for major industry OEMs such as Honeywell, Goodrich, and Hamilton Sundstrand, to mention a few,” said Robert Sadler, Ontic’s Director of Marketing and Licensor Relations. "Over the last 35 years Ontic has developed and refined a proprietary transition process to ensure a smooth product transfer from the OEM with minimal customer disruption, the ODA designation now enables Ontic to issue our own TSO or PMA from within, streamlining our process even further with the ability to deliver product to customers very quickly."
