Metro Aerospace, the exclusive manufacturer of drag-reducing Microvanes for the Hercules C-130/L-100, has announced it has been awarded AS9100D certification for its quality management system, an accreditation that seeks to recognize the company´s product design, production, and testing processes, the company said.
The AS9100 certification is the highest-level Quality Management System designation for the aerospace industry. This standard is recognized in the United States and globally, selectively awarded following lengthy and rigorous business, manufacturing and quality process audits. NSF International conducted comprehensive audits to assess Metro´s compliance with the rigorous AS9100D standard.
AS9100 requirements are based on ISO 9001 quality requirements, which are supplemented with additional quality system requirements established by the aerospace industry in order to satisfy Department of Defense, NASA and FAA quality requirements. Metro Aerospace also obtained ISO9001:2015 certification along with AS9100D.
