Patria receives Military DOA in Finland
Patria has received Military Design Organisation Approval (DOA) based on the European Defence Agency’s European military airworthiness requirements from the Finnish military aviation authority, the company announced on 16 May.
The Finnish military aviation authority operates in connection with the Air Force Command. The authority enhances best practices in military aviation, with the approval covering design of aircraft structures, systems, gas turbine power plants and software.
Setting and monitoring the military aviation requirements affects the development of safety and practices as well as securing the continuous development of equipment.
Recognition as a Military Design Organisation verifies and expands established practices between Patria and the Finnish Defence Forces.
Patria received the civilian approval DOA from the European Aviation Safety Agency in 2012.
