Brussels – The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) praised the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA)’s decision to adopt Certification Specifications for Standard Changes & Standard Repairs (CS-STAN). The long-awaited approach will simplify the process of making standard changes and repairs to a broad swath of general aviation (GA) aircraft in Europe.

“EASA’s adoption of CS-STAN demonstrates the new, pragmatic mind set throughout the safety agency, one that seeks a proportional approach to regulations that impact general aviation,” GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce said. “These new certifications will provide standard acceptable methods and techniques for manufacturers to make simple repairs and modifications for many GA aircraft, rather than requiring individual applications to EASA each time a change is made. By doing so, it will encourage adoption of new, safety-enhancing technologies such as Angle of Attack indicators and moving-map systems. As a result of standardizing the certification process, costs and time involved to make changes and modifications will be reduced, while the safety of many GA aeroplanes and rotorcraft will improve.

“GAMA and its members will continue to work with EASA to ensure these certification specifications are updated to keep pace with new technologies and developments,” Bunce said.
