Flight Testing

Our Design Organisation possess the ability to carry out Flight Testing under its own approval, commonly referred to as Flight Test Operations Manual (FTOM) approval.
Flight Testing is often required when an aircraft has undergone significant modification which could have an affect on the flight characteristics of the aircraft, such as installation of an external store.

Prior to the approval of the modification the aircraft may have to be flown under Approved Flight Test Conditions (AFC) to gather compliance data needed to approve the modification.

We possess the in-house capability to perform the following:

    Approval for Flight Test Categories 2 & 4
    Approval of Flight Test Conditions (AFC)
    Compilation of Flight Test Plans & Reports (FTP & FTR)
    Installation of Flight Test Instrumentation (FTI)
    Issuance of Permits to Fly (PTF)
    Provision of Flight Test Engineers (FTE’s)
    Provision of Flight Test Pilots (FTP’s)

Certification

As an approved design and production organisation certification is at the heart of everything we do here at Gama. We are experienced in producing both Major & Minor Changes and Repairs that are either approved or accepted by the various National Aviation Authorities (NAA’s) across the world.

With over 1700 Minor Changes & Repairs and 70+ STC’s within our portfolio we often have an off-the-shelf design solution to fit your particular needs.
However, we also realise that not every aircraft is the same and every project is different, if we don’t have a pre-existing design we have the capability and approvals to produce a new Change or Repair to support your particular aircraft and operation.

Our core certification activity includes:

    Minor Changes created in-house
    Minor Repairs created in-house
    Major Changes & STC’s
    Validations of Minor Changes, Repairs & STC’s
    Experienced in working with the vast majority of the world’s NAA’s
