(Georgetown, Delaware, November 4, 2021) – ALOFT AeroArchitects announced today it has been named Viasat, Inc.’s Service Supplier of the Year for well executed delivery of certification and Organization Delegation Authority (ODA) services.
ALOFT is a long-tenured Viasat supplier, providing certification and Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) approval services to Viasat’s aviation business. ALOFT, acting on behalf of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) through its ODA, has provided several certification support services to Viasat, including issuing STCs for various modern commercial aircraft types and configurations flying today. ALOFT has also achieved European Union Aviation Safety Authority (EASA) validation through its ODA for Viasat.
ALOFT Vice President of Engineering, Certification and ODA, Tony Beck, commented, “ALOFT has made a strategic initiative and ongoing commitment years ago to deliver FAA STC projects for customers that leverage the schedule benefits of using an ODA but also represent real, tangible value to our pioneering customers, delivered with customer service and proactive guidance that any paying customer would expect. Viasat was an early adopter and believer in ALOFT’s ability to provide the service they needed in a way that was transparent and without surprises. We’re proud to have earned this important award from such a valued customer.”
Ryan Barber, Supply Chain director at Viasat, added, “We congratulate the ALOFT team on receiving the Viasat service supplier excellence distinction, especially in an environment that was significantly challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic.
