Processes & Quality
Through the use of various standards and processes, Barfield is constantly striving to guarantee a high level of quality and flight safety. We pay attention to what our customers are saying and often work with them to achieve decreased maintenance through our product reliability program.
Barfield is fully committed to compliance with its quality and reliability programs as well as regulatory compliance. We are consistently reviewing reports and key indicators to identify problems that customers may encounter. This pro-active approach under our risk management program has proven to be an invaluable tool in identifying potential issues not just with the product but also the support.
Our formalized systems for assessing and managing risk are very instrumental for our Continuous Improvement Plan in both repairs and manufacturing.
Barfield is certificated under the following standards:
- FAA Part 145 Repair Station
- EASA Part 145 Repair Station
- AS 9100 C / ISO 9001:2008
- Barfield Precision Electronics LLC: Air Agency Certificate
- Barfield Aero LLC: Air Agency Certificate, EASA 2017
The semi-annual review of our quality system aids in determining any adjustments that may need to be accomplished. It also reflects upon those areas where the Quality Plan is implemented and effective.
We are proud of the quality product that Barfield produces. Reliability is of utmost concern and taken very seriously by the company. “Zero tolerance” is our motto as we continue to raise the bar and continually pursue even higher standards.
