ODA Services

The FAA ODA program was developed by the FAA to replace and expand the former DAS designations, safely and more efficiently managing an expanding workload for certification of aircraft projects by FAA departments. The ODA designation and authority was granted selectively to applicants that maintain certain expertise and capability to manage the complex certification process for ancillary aircraft systems or components. 

ALOFT AeroArchitects is proud to have received both the STC ODA and the PMA ODA, giving us the ability to develop, manufacture and modify aviation parts and systems. This is unique, in that the STC ODA supports both manufactured aircraft systems/components and interior completion STCs. Additionally, the ALOFT ODA also has the unique capability to self-approve it’s authored Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICAs) which saves additional time in the STC process that is traditionally granted to the FAA for reviewing such documentation in the order they are received.

ALOFT AeroArchitects ODA offers STC Services for systems engineered for compliance by our in-house team or by third parties, with the installation work completed either at our facility or at another qualified facility.  Our ODA can partner with your engineering team for swift STC approvals through a collaborative, integrated process.
