AURA AERO, French aircraft manufacturer in decarbonised aviation, announces it has obtained the EASA PART 21J (industrial design) approval, that complements the PART 21G (manufacturing) approval obtained in November 2021, and officially becomes a full aircraft manufacturer, from design to production.
This approval, delivered by the EASA, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, the company says follows a 24-month audit on the Toulouse-Francazal site, where the manufacturer’s design office is located.
“The PART 21J approval certifies that AURA AERO aircraft are compliant with the aeronautical regulation in terms of design, manufacturing and equipment in the European context” according to the press release. “It also certifies that the manufacturer uses regulatory airworthiness documents.
“Two years after launching serial production for the INTEGRAL family – the two-seater designed for training, leisure and aerobatics – and after the first flight of INTEGRAL S last July, AURA AERO will shortly put INTEGRAL R back into flight, and the tests of the first INTEGRAL E aircraft – the full-electric version – have already started.
“ERA, the hybrid-electric regional transport 19-seater, the decarbonised solution for regional point to point air mobility, should enter into service in 2028.”
