Certification Testing

BAC Aero is a creation of a former Canadian government expert in aerospace propulsion certification field.  The intent is to provide expertise to the emerging aircraft OEM and STC market that previously available only to large OEMs such as Bombardier, Bell Helicopter Canada or Pratt & Whitney Canada.
