In addition, value retention and reliable life-cycle support are essential factors for aircraft operators and owners. IAMA jointly develop transparent standards that will help our customers make the right decisions.

Head of the Design Organization at Lufthansa Technik

We enable aircraft operators to decide objectively and independently on the best possible modification solution for their fleet – regardless of a specific provider.

Thomas Rueckert
Head of Base Maintenance and Aircraft Modification at Lufthansa Technik

The aftermarket modifier ecosystem needed a 'home' to discuss our challenges and best practices, to improve our services by delivering a common message to the market. Together, we have the objective to shape the future of the STC in the aviation world.

Patrick Gindre
Sales Director of EAD Aerospace

We believe that OEMs will also benefit from becoming members of IAMA, which is open to all modification providers.

Bernhard Randerath

IAMA will be a collaborative and knowledgeable reference and voice to regulators and standardization committees regarding how STCs efficiently fulfil these obligations. The alliance will foster proportionate and adapted regulations, and jointly develop and provide the optimal tools to its members.

STCs are a fast, cost-efficient way to provide modifications, and IAMA is a promising approach to address the critical points of documentation simplicity and continued after-sales support.
