Q.C.M. design gmbh

"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. 
Design is how it works."

- Steve Jobs 


Established in 2011, Q.C.M. design gmbh, is an EASA-approved Design Organization which complements Q.C.M.'s already extensive capabilities in the field of general aviation.

Q.C.M. design gmbh's ambition is to fulfill your expectations in regards to creative and technical potential, as well as to the highest available safety and quality standards on the market.

Q.C.M. design gmbh received its EASA Part 21J Design Organization Approval (EASA.21J.509) in May 2013, and we have been powering forward at full throttle since then.

In the three years since receiving our EASA Approval Certificate, Q.C.M. design gmbh has completed over 105 projects, seven of which are Supplemental Type Certificates (STC). These STCs, in order of when they were received, were for

  • The change in Layout of Passenger Accommodation on a Challenger 604, and finally,
  • The installation of a Hook Release Modification to the same EC 130 T2 helicopter
  • The upgrade of the Honeywell CD-820 Control Display Unit to the newer CD-830 on a Hawker 800XP
  • The upgrade of the Garmin GTX330D transponders to GTX330D w/ES with ADS-B Out Capability on a Cessna 525

Our seventh, and newest STC, received September 28, 2016, is for

Why do you need a Design Organization?  

All deviations from an aircraft type design are “changes” that have to be approved by the authorities. Because these deviations can range from a simple correction to a massive structural intrusion, the EASA considers two kinds of changes: minor and major changes. Major Changes are design changes as defined by EU regulation 748/2012 § 21A.91 and GM 21A.91. Minor Changes are all other changes not classified as a Major Design change.

As a Part 21J Design Organization, we are entitled to classify and approve minor changes, as well as help our customers plan for major changes; this gives us more flexibility to find solutions for your requests.
