Additional Skills & Qualifications:

Electrical Systems and Equipment DER for Part 23 (preferred) and 25 (required)- Understanding aircraft systems from the electrical standpoint. If they are an Electrical Systems and Equipment DER they should have this knowledge. Must provide their FAA Official Certificate and Letter of Authority and DMS Designee Number and show up when searching the official FAA records.

Able to create or check the various certification documents (certification plan, compliance report, system safety assessment, etc.) - Being able to create certification plans, compliance reports, issue papers, system safety assessments and other certification related documentation.

Able to design electrical aircraft installations.- Understand aircraft wiring diagrams and systems to be able to create electrical installation packages and design electrical installation kits. The software used is Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, Teams) as well as AutoCAD.

Note - The DERs that show up on the website are consultant DERs which means they hold the approvals themselves and it isn’t tied to a company. Another type of DER is a company DER. These DERs are limited in what they can approve. These people will not show up on the DER directly because they are only allowed to approve data on behalf of the company they are currently working for. We don’t want to discount these people either but it would require us to talk to the FAA first to see if they could have the approval transferred to us.
