ASA met today with a delegation from the Zhengzhou University of Aeronautics.

The Zhengzhou University of Aeronautics, is a university located in Zhengzhou, Henan, China.  University staff are helping to develop the Zhengzhou Airport Economy Zone, and are interested in learning about norms for aircraft parts distribution.

ASA discussed the international norms for design and production approval of aircraft products and articles.  We discussed the specific ways that those norms are implemented in Europe and North America.  We also discussed the EU and US standards for installing aircraft parts, and the role that distributors play in the chain of commerce from approved part manufacturing to installation of those same parts. We discussed ASA’s role in distributor accreditation and our recent meetings with CAAC and CAMAC to discuss partnering with them on safety promotion.

The group had a lot of questions about distributor accreditation and about business norms in our industry.

The University has more than 28,000 full-time students and appears to offer a wide variety of aviation-related degrees (they also offer non-aviation degrees in other fields like law).  Keeping the faculty informed about the industry’s opportunities is just the first step in ensuring that the next generation is prepared to improve safety and push the boundaries of excellence.
