Military Aviation Design Organisation Approval for Insta ILS Oy

Technology Corporation Insta Group Oy is the second organisation to receive the approval in Finland

Finnish Military Aviation Authority (FIMAA) has awarded Insta ILS the European Military Airworthiness Requirements (EMAR) based Military Design Organisation Approval (MDOA). This certificate grants Insta ILS to perform military aviation design work and to approve minor modifications independently. In addition, this certificate eases the start-up of new projects.

- Insta ILS approval to certify products itself releases resources from the Finnish Defense Forces in the future. The certificate will also ease Insta to take part into international projects. Having an internationally recognized certificate means common standards between participating parties. The MDOA certificate seals the long, decades standing co-operation with the Finnish Defense Forces and Insta Group, acknowledges Director of Military Aviation Authority, Colonel Kimmo Nortaja.

Certificate opens opportunities for new businesses
International aviation requirements are in the background of EMAR regulations. A prerequisite is that organisation involved in design and maintenance activities for aircrafts shall have appropriate approvals and certificates. Design Organisation Handbook (DOH) as accepted by authorities during audit describes the design processes and named responsible persons.

-Military Design Organisation Approval is a significant demonstration of the credibility and quality of the work we have done. With the approval we can expand our operations and it gives us opportunities for new kind of business, states Insta ILS Executive Vice President Ville Soininen.
 
Enhances aviation safety
MDOA certificate contributes proactively to development of military aviation safety and new practices to ensure continuous improvement of the actions. EMAR-21 regulations have been harmonised in Europe during last eight years and applied in Finland during spring 2017. The application of EMAR approvals is in responsibility of each country’s military aviation authority. In civil aviation, corresponding regulation has been in use for a long time.
