Duluth, Minn. (October 11, 2006) Cirrus Design Corporation announced today that it has received an ODAR (Organization Designated Airworthiness Representative) designation from the FAA. This authority allows CIRRUS to train, evaluate, and manage its own team of airworthiness designees. This additional responsibility allows flexibility within the company to support changing resource needs driven by various projects.
CIRRUS employees, specifically trained as authorized representatives of ODAR, under Jeff Holter, CIRRUS' ODAR Compliance Manager, will now have more efficient and internal control over functions such as airworthiness approvals, exporting, and conformity inspections.
