Transform Your Aviation Capabilities with Collinear Group


Navigating the Future of Aviation: Your Partner in ODA Development


In an era where new aircraft production is slowing and regulatory backlogs are growing, airlines are seeking innovative ways to stay competitive. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval process is becoming increasingly time-consuming, affecting airlines' abilities to implement necessary modifications. As a result, obtaining Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) capabilities has become a crucial strategy for leading airlines.


Why ODA Matters

With the FAA granting ODA Authority, many Fixed Base Operators (FBOs), suppliers, and independent companies have started offering ODA services. However, these services often experience delays, barely improving the speed and efficiency of modifications. Major airlines like American, Delta, Southwest, and United have taken the initiative to develop ODA capabilities in-house, giving them control over their aircraft modifications and regulatory processes.

Unlike any other provider, Collinear Group specializes in assisting companies in developing their own ODA capabilities. Our expertise ensures that airlines and new OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) can navigate the complexities of FAA regulations and streamline their certification processes.
