Yulista Aviation, Inc. Scores 98.8 on Aerospace and ISO Audit
On May 28, 2010, Yulista Aviation, Inc. (YAI), a Calista Corporation subsidiary in Huntsville, Alabama, passed their annual Aerospace Quality Management System (QMS) audit for AS9100-2004, AS9110-2003, and International Standardization Organization (ISO) 9001-2008 recertification with a score of 98.8 percent.
When YAI originally received the certifications, in 2007, it was only the seventh company in the U.S. to obtain the AS9110, and the second to hold a Federal Aviation Administration Part 145 Repair Station Air Agency Certificate with AS9110 and AS9100 certifications.
Bernie Parr, Aviation Manager, and Jason Seyboth, Director of Aviation Operations at YAI, managed the efforts to obtain recertification. Parr, who is responsible for YAI's internal auditing program and oversees the day-to-day functions of the QMS procedures and processes, says, "the certification qualifies YAI for contracts requiring this aerospace maintenance standard, of which, only 57 companies currently possess within the United States."
ISO 9001 certification promotes a quality management system that focuses on achieving customer satisfaction by delivering error-free products. This methodology focuses on process compliance and continuous process improvement. ISO 9001 certification has become a mark of honor and can appear as a contractual requirement in partnership deals.
"Obtaining such a high score and being recertified requires hard work and attention to detail on the part of our employees," said Matthew Nicolai, Calista Corporation CEO and president. "We are very pleased with YAI's efforts as this will greatly benefit both the company and our customers."
