Top success stories

— Cockpit composite interior redesign

A team of AKKA design engineers, project managers and tooling design specialists worked on a project involving the redesign of the composite cockpit interior for a business jet of a leading aircraft manufacturer. Our team supported the entire engineering and project structure, operating on-site and in cooperation with the manufacturing supplier. Technical and managerial competencies were required to deliver a cockpit that achieved the client's expectations.

— Fuselage design and stress calculation

AKKA GNA has been supporting world-leading companies in the design and production of aerostructures since the very beginning. In Canada, the story began in 2012, when we provided our engineering expertise to a leading manufacturer’s business jet program. The work package involved supporting the on-site team in designing fuselage parts and taking care of stress calculations. Our specialists brought supervision and project management support to all of the design phases. We continue to support this program.
