HAECO Cabin Solutions expands international ODA capability
HAECO Cabin Solutions, a division of HAECO Americas announced today that it has expanded its Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) team, adding Meredith Frazier, who is qualified to work as a cabin safety ODA unit member.
The designation allows her to review and approve drawings of parts and/or part alterations to witness tests, among other duties, ensuring all interior products on commercial aircraft comply with FAA standards.
“We expanded our ODA team to better serve our customers and to ensure the highest levels of safety are implemented,” said Jose Pevida, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Product Development at HAECO Cabin Solutions, in today’s announcement. “Expanding our ability to certify, test and approve the installation of our products increases our bandwidth, and gives our customers more scheduling flexibility, shorter turnaround times and less down time for their aircraft.”
The ODA group’s expansion parallels the debut of the Eclipse Cabin at the Aircraft Interiors EXPO in Hamburg and the new business wins for the Vector Premium and Vector Economy seating platforms. Both announcements came on the heels of Airbus’ approval of HAECO’s line-fit seat selection to be included in the A350 catalog, and of HAECO Cabin Solutions as an offerable supplier for Vector Economy on the A320.
