CERTIFICATION

 

In March 2010 the JS1 Revelation gained its official certification by the South African Civil Aviation Authorities (SACAA). With SACAA Type Certification to CS-22 and with an SACAA ICAO- compliant Certificate of Airworthiness the JS1 Revelation should be able to be flown without restriction in any ICAO-signatory country.

The Type Certification has been awarded only after rigorous analysis and testing, with robust compliance verification by SACAA.

However JS recognises that EASA (and its predecessor, JAA, and the German LBA) are widely acknowledged as the experts in glider certification and that it is important to gain EASA Type Certification (TC) or Type Validation (TV) of the JS1 Revelation, both for market confidence and to enable local registration of the JS1 in Europe. Local registration would allow local maintenance procedures to be applied.

 

The company M & D Flugzeugbau has now requested the European Type Certificate at EASA, so that a registration in all EASA Member States would be possible. In the initial meeting with the authorities, it was agreed that all the necessary procedures could be completed by the end of 2015. Maintenance is then performed according to the European rules, as with all other manufacturers.

This application was made as part of a newly agreed partnership between the companies Jonker Sailplanes and M & D Aviation, which has already produced the jet engine for the JS1. Both companies retain in this partnership their economic independence.

While much of the construction phases will continue to be done at Jonker Sailplanes in South Africa under the quality management of M & D, the focus in Germany will be on the final assembly, the finish and the type certificate assurance of the JS1c.
