DynCorp International’s team working in support of the Theater Aviation Sustainment Manager – OCONUS (TASM-O) region under the Army Aviation Field Maintenance (AFM) contract, has earned the AS 9110 Quality Maintenance Systems certification. AS9110 is a quality management system standard for aerospace maintenance, repair, and overhaul organizations (MROs) in the aerospace industry.
Within six months of receiving this task order under the AFM contract, DI’s more than 700 team members worked together to achieve this goal.
Meeting Our Commitments
“Our team members banded together to achieve this certification in a very short period of time, a true testament to DI’s commitment to providing best-value service our customers,” said Billy White, DynCorp International program director.
The TASM-O team, based out of Illesheim, Germany, provides aviation maintenance services throughout several locations in Europe, Egypt, Korea and Honduras. DI is now the first company to be certified to the AS 9110 standard in Egypt and Kosovo.
AS 9110 Certification
AS9110 was developed by the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG) in response to increasing demands for maintenance, repair and operations-specific concerns on safety, reliability, and airworthiness. AS9110 provides additional criteria for the maintenance and repair of private, commercial, and military aircrafts.
AS9110 includes nearly 100 requirements for suppliers, airline companies, aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), FAA-certified repair stations, and regulatory agencies and takes a process-based approach by focusing on identifying key processes and achieving continual improvement.
The two-step certification process is applicable to all levels of the maintenance, repair and operations process. Achieving this level of certification demonstrates a commitment to deliver quality products and services to customers, reduces operating costs, and improves profitability and timeliness.
