SimpleQuE Presents Advanced Air With AS9100 Letter of Compliance
SimpleQuE congratulates Advanced Air of West Palm Beach on achieving ISO 9001 and AS9100 compliance!
Advanced Air of West Palm Beach, Inc. has been fabricating custom replacement aircraft bushings, sleeves and out-of-scope nuts to support the landing gear overhaul industry for more than 35 years. Their customers include a wide range of military and commercial aircraft covering Boeing and Airbus platforms and many more including F-15, Boeing 787, and Airbus A380. With an extensive and complete inventory of aerospace quality materials, their state-of-the-art facility can provide rapid turnaround, accuracy, and cost-effective fabrication of specialized bushing for aircraft of any size.
What Was Their Challenge?
Although Advanced Air has always maintained the AS9100 and ISO 9001 requirements of compliance, they lacked the structure required to efficiently streamline their efforts. The main challenge was a lack of manpower to invest in an overhaul of their systems.
Finding The Right Solution
SimpleQuE’s aerospace quality experts provided steps to improve their Quality Management System (QMS) and stay ahead of their customers’ compliance requirements. Advanced Air chose to work with simpleQuE in 2018 for their customized approach and full-service option of compliance support, thus freeing up internal manpower.
SimpleQuE consultants performed a gap analysis and then worked through the action plan, providing consulting, internal audits and AS9100 Overview training. Their support also ensured a strategic planning process was conducted and documented to meet the requirements of AS9100:2016, including appropriate risk management, action plans, goals and objectives, and ongoing monitoring of performance.
Achieving ISO 9001 and AS9100 compliance has positioned Advanced Air to be a world leader in the aviation sector. “SimpleQuE helped our company to realize, improve; On-Time Delivery, Quality, and Customer Service. We also gained a leadership perspective that helped us come together as a management team to identify and achieve company objectives. The lessons that we learned from your approach have forever impacted our company in a positive way”. – Mike Taft, Quality Control Manager, Advanced Air of West Palm Beach, Inc.
