Flight Design completes ISO 9001 quality assurance audit; successful result adds to LAMA and other independent audits

Flight Design is serious about quality. The company conducts internal audits as required by ASTM standards that govern certification of Light-Sport Aircraft. Flight Design has obtained the German LTF-BfU seal of approval. The company has been through independent audits from the Light Aircraft Manufacturers Association (LAMA). And most recently, Flight design successfully completed ISO 9001-2000 certification.

"The principal company philosophy of Flight Design is to achieve complete customer satisfaction," said CEO Matthias Betsch. "To improve quality and processes Flight Design has first participated successfully an LAMA audit in 2007. To further improve systems in 2008, Flight Design went through the ISO 9001-2000 certification process."

The March 2008 audit was made by the T V who also specializes in ISO 9100 (aerospace quality management systems) audits. T V is Germany's oldest organization for technical approvals and is an organization with an outstanding reputation worldwide. The T V Lead Auditor for quality management systems, a very experienced aerospace auditor, led the Flight Design audit.

Flight Design successfully completed the first audit with a final report that did not show a single discrepancy and after the full three-day audit the two auditors had only some recommendations. The ISO 9001-2000 audit includes Flight Design in Germany and its design and manufacturing facilities in Kherson, Ukraine.

"Flight Design and its employees are very proud for this outstanding result," stated Betsch. "Our whole team is highly motivated to continuously improve."

Flight Design officials extended special thanks to Mr. Udo Verhufen from "Return on Quality" who did an excellent job in consulting Flight Design regarding the ISO 9001-2000 system.

Flight Design is a 22-year-old air sport products producer based in Germany. Over 1,000 of its aircraft are flying in 25 countries. One of the first aircraft certified under the American ASTM standards, in 2005, the CT ("composite technology") remains the best-selling LSA in America. CT in several models has been popular in Germany and Europe for more than twelve years.
