"PC-24 is EASA & FAA certified" 

Another successful milestone in the history of the Pilatus was achieved on December 7th, 2017 - The PC-24 EASA & FAA certification. The design, calculation and qualification of the horizontal-tail, the groundspoliers, the windshields and cabin windows are major contributions from AeroFEM. We are proud to support this project as development partner of Pilatus.

 

 
 

 
 

"EC 130 AeroFEM Bubble Window Flight Test" 

In collaboration with Kuerzi Avionics AG, AirZermatt AG and Armasuisse the flight tests of the AeroFEM Bubble Window Installation were carried out on the airfield Raron from 08.05.2017 to 10.05.2017. The successful completion of these tests which are part of the certification program forms a further step towards the issuing of the Supplemental Type Certificate.
