What is an aircraft lessor and an airline looking for in an EASA Part 21J Design Organisation Approval (DOA) holder such as Aerospace Engineering Solutions?

An aircraft lessor or airline typically looks for certain qualities in a DOA holder and there are many factors they consider important:

  • Compliance: The DOA holder should have a strong track record of compliance with regulatory requirements and standards set by aviation authorities. This ensures that the designs and modifications performed by the DOA meet safety and airworthiness standards.
  • Expertise and Experience: The lessor or airline will value the DOA’s expertise and experience in aircraft design, modification, and engineering solutions. A proven track record of successfully completed projects and a team of skilled professionals contribute to the DOA’s credibility.
  • Technical Capabilities: The DOA should possess the necessary technical capabilities and infrastructure to handle the lessor’s or airline’s specific requirements. This includes having appropriate design tools, software, testing facilities, and qualified personnel.
  • Flexibility and Responsiveness: The lessor or airline would prefer a DOA that can adapt to their needs and provide timely responses. Flexibility in accommodating modifications, efficient communication, and prompt delivery of design solutions are valued traits.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: While quality and compliance are crucial, the DOA’s pricing and cost-effectiveness also play a role. The lessor or airline will consider the overall value proposition, including the DOA’s pricing structure and competitiveness in the market

Ultimately, the Aircraft Lessor’s DOA expectations is to provide reliable, compliant, and cost-effective engineering solutions, ensuring the airworthiness and safety of their aircraft fleet.

International Women in Engineering Day 2023 (INWED) is a global initiative celebrated on June 23 each year, dedicated to recognising the achievements of women in engineering and inspiring the next generation of female engineers. It is a day to reflect on the progress made towards gender equality in the engineering field and to reaffirm our commitment to supporting and empowering women in this industry.

One of our outstanding employees, Lola Lahoz Nogales, Deputy of Head of Airworthiness & Design Office Manager in Spain, has consistently demonstrated a deep commitment to empowering women in engineering. Her unwavering support and advocacy have significantly encouraged more women to pursue careers in the traditionally male-dominated field. Lola has catalysed positive change through mentorship programs, career development initiatives, and engaging outreach activities.

In this short video clip, part of the International Federation of Airworthiness ‘Why I chose …’ series of films, Lola shares why she chose aviation engineering for her career and how her passion for airworthiness has developed.
