We are Airframe Designs

Airframe Designs Limited is a UK registered company, established in 2009 to provide a stress analysis capability for the aviation, space and defence markets.

Evidence of the continual shortage and high demand for experienced stress engineers were the catalysts for the formation of Airframe Designs (AFD).

The core business of AFD is aviation SAFETY, supporting EASA Part 21J Design Organisations to certify structural changes and repairs to aircraft and rotorcraft.

AFD has a strong team of Stress Engineers and Structures CVEs (Compliance Verification Engineers) accustomed to the needs of the industry and highly familiar with EASA Part21J legislation, airworthiness regulations, and acceptable means of compliance.

AFD has extensive experience in the civilian, military and defence sectors, providing services into major airlines, special mission platforms, military fleets, VIP customers and product development of aero-medical stretchers, seats, and cabin interior monuments.

AFD operates on a flexible basis and will adapt to the client’s needs to enable work package delivery to be carried out efficiently.
