JANA Inc. subsidiary Aircraft Systems and Manufacturing Inc. (ASM) has received FAA Organization Designation Authorization (ODA). Founded in 1987, ASM provides “FAA STC certification and installation kit fabrication services in support of avionics and aircraft systems upgrades for commercial passenger, cargo and military operators worldwide.” Slovenia-based aircraft sales, leasing and charter company Elit’Avia has announced that it has adopted the Skylegs aviation management platform. According to the companies, implementation of the platform—including planning meetings, customization, employee training, adaptation and full migration—took place entirely online due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
