Quality Manual

Aircraft Hinge Customer
Subject: Quality Survey

Aircraft Hinge is a direct supplier to Boeing, Lockheed, Northrop, Department of Defense, and many other Quality Aerospace Companies.  We have an ISO 9002 based Quality system that is approved to Boeing AS9100, Rev. A, Lockheed’s QA Requirements, Northrop AS9100 compliance, and Department of Defense requirements.

Review of hundreds of customer survey requests has led to the development of a company overview (attached) that will answer all of your pertinent questions.  We are compliant to all AS9100 requirements, Management Responsibility (4.1) to Statistical Techniques (4.20).

We appreciate the opportunity to provide World Class Aerospace Hinges to your company.  In keeping with one of our Quality Policy charters of providing cost efficient service to our customers we have eliminated the costly and repetitive task of addressing surveys that mimic the AS9100 and Boeing Quality System surveys.

If the approvals of the above listed primes are insufficient for your requirements please call and we will schedule time for your survey.

Thank You,
