ALOFT AeroArchitects Recaps 2018 for Engineering, Certification and ODA Services
Georgetown, DE — February 5, 2019 — ALOFT AeroArchitects experienced another great year in the growth of its Engineering, Certification and ODA Services business. The team delivered 28 certification projects in 2018 which included the issuance or amendment of 28 Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs).
