Cirrus Design Corp. has landed a milestone, receiving an Organization Designated Airworthiness Representative (ODAR) designation from the FAA.
This authority allows Cirrus to train, evaluate and manage its own team of airworthiness designees.
The designation is a “testament to the FAA’s confidence in our quality systems and personnel,” says David Coleal, president and COO.
The Duluth, Minn.-based company also was expected to announce its single-engine jet, called the-jet, at this month’s National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention in Orlando. About 1,500 informational packets were sent to Cirrus owners and other prospects in the weeks before the convention. While there was no mock-up of the jet at NBAA, the company was accepting $100,000 deposits.
