First Article & Qualification Testing

Merrill Aviation & Defense takes pride in ensuring all of our products meet and exceed our customer’s requirements. We design a rigorous First Article Inspection (FAI) process allowing us to provide first article testing that enables us to verify manufacturing processes at the component-level. For programs requiring higher-level assembly and integration, Merrill Aviation & Defense works with our customers to develop a comprehensive Qualification Test Plan that validates the functional, performance, environmental and interface requirements of the completed assembly.
