Another great leap forward for Avio division, few days before Christmas holiday.
After obtaining APDOA – Alternative Procedure Design Organisation Approval on December, 2016 and the Type Certificate for CMD22 gasoline engine on January 2018, CMD Avio becomes DOA HOLDER (Design Organisation Approval).
A lot of satisfaction for CMD, the only one Italian DOA company that designs and develops piston engines (diesel and gasoline) for aeronautical use.
DOA offers to CMD some advantages that provide greater independence respect to the control exercised by the EASA on the certified engines and their development.
The advantages include the possibility of approving all engine modifications (with minor importance) to the project on their own and independently conducting all qualification and certification tests for these changes, independently of the Agency.
