The US Federal Aviation Administration has added Boeing’s South Carolina facilities to the airframer’s production certificate following a stringent audit of the facilities.
“This is a very exciting day for Boeing South Carolina, the South Carolina Interiors Responsibility Center, and Boeing Commercial Airplanes,” said Jack Jones, Boeing South Carolina vice president and general manager.
“Earning the right to join the production certificate is a significant achievement that validates Boeing South Carolina as a producer of commercial airplanes that meet the FAA’s requirements and Boeing’s high standards.”
The certificate is issued once an airplane manufacturer has demonstrated to the FAA that its facilities and quality management system meet the agency’s stringent safety and reliability requirements.
