Certificates

At Hope Aero we maintain our ability to work on a broad and ever-expanding range of products throughout North America and worldwide through our commitment to having all the latest required maintenance certificates, including those from EASA, Transport Canada and the Canadian military.

The Controlled Goods Program (CGP) (Canadian equivalent of the U.S. ITAR program) is an industrial security program that helps to strengthen Canada’s defense trade controls and prevents the proliferation of tactical and strategic assets including weapons, satellite global positioning systems (GPS) and communications equipment, military equipment and related intellectual property.

Hope Aero’s facilities have security clearance for all staff members, and access controls are in place for visitors. While these security restrictions are in place for the Controlled Goods Program, they also benefit the company through the enhanced security of the facility, our employees and our customers’ property.

With everyone’s contributions we hope to continue to grow.
