M7 Aerospace announces new engineering division

M7 Aerospace has announced the launch of a new Engineering Division business unit, designed to provide a wide variety of engineering services to M7 Aerospace, its customers, and other organizations or individuals requiring design, analysis or test procedures.

Joe Furnish, vice president of Engineering for M7, will direct the new organization, which includes engineers with experience in aeronautical, mechanical, electrical and stress engineering.

A staff of 26 engineers and support personnel gives M7 Engineering the capacity to handle a broad range of engineering functions, including structural design, stress analysis, prototyping, static and dynamic testing, flight development and certifications, electrical and burn testing, environmental systems, configuration management and related activities.

M7's engineering team has certified aircraft and systems to requirements of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and other foreign certification agencies, spanning the requirements of FAR 23, 25, 27, 29 and their European equivalents. The team is familiar with both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft.

Catia, Unigraphics, and AutoCAD are just a few of the data processing systems available to and used extensively by M7's Engineering Services group.

Engineering Services becomes M7's sixth business unit. The others include Aerostructures Manufacturing; Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul; Government Logistics Programs; Aircraft Parts and Product Support; and M7 Visual Intelligence, which specializes in remote sensing.

M7 Aerospace is located on the international airport in San Antonio. The company operates from a 426,000 sq. ft. factory complex formerly occupied by Fairchild Aircraft. M7 acquired the assets of Fairchild Aircraft in December 2002 and began operations under its own name on April 1, 2003.

M7 began with approximately 175 employees three years ago, including 116 in San Antonio. Today, the company now employs more than 500 people worldwide and more than 300 in San Antonio.
