Symphony Aircraft Industries (SAI) has announced that the FAA
has issued a Type Certificate for the SA 160 aircraft to Symphony
“Receiving the Symphony 160’s FAA type certificate
is a significant milestone for our company and this
aircraft,” said SAI President and CEO Paul Costanzo.
“The US market is one of great importance for Symphony
Aircraft Industries, with the FAA type certificate in hand there
are no more obstacles, and American pilots can start taking
delivery of their new U.S. registered SA 160."
Issued on Monday, May 2, the FAA type certificate follows on the
heels of the Canadian type and production certificates, which were
issued by Transport Canada in mid-March and the European type
certificate issued by EASA. The FAA type certificate will allow SAI
to register the SA 160 in the United States. It also facilitates
the delivery of these aircraft through American Symphony and its
national network of dealers.
