PMA & DER
PMA is the acronym of Parts Manufacturer Approval, an approval made by the Federal Aviation Administration that establishes that a PMA holder is approved to manufacture certain parts and issue PMA documents (hence PMA) for those parts.
The PMA holder’s designated engineering representative (DER) is the PMA holder’s authorized representative responsible for performing or supervising engineering functions associated with PMA parts fabrication. PMA DERs are required to be qualified and approved by the FAA (See DO 4W, Part 21 Inspection Authorization Procedures).
AK Structures provides high-quality services to PMA parts, PMA-authorized products, PMA manufacturers, and more.

When manufacturing aircraft structures, our engineers use CAD (Computer-Aided Design) and CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing) processes to design the required structure, then we proceed to use our machinery to create a mold or master before we can begin manufacturing. Aircraft structures are required to be able to withstand large amounts of force from different angles while keeping lightweight. Our experienced staff will make sure every bolt is tightened according to specifications using torque wrenches; we’ll even perform visual inspections of finished products to ensure they meet their specific requirements.
