AAAM 44.9:AJ — Jet Engines

In addition to the basic specifications for general application of advanced metrology, the American Association of Advanced Metrology offers a specific endorsement for testing laboratories, agencies, institutions, manufacturers and other practitioners to apply advanced metrological technologies to the inspection of jet turbine engine parts.

AAAM 44.9 Jet Engine Aerospace endorsement (AAAM 44.9:AJ) is conferred on candidate laboratories that can demonstrate, via Gauge R&R and the tiered application process, the ability to perform measurements and sophisticated data analysis of at least the minimum accuracy required by the quality and safety standards prevalent among manufacturers of jet engines.

To that end, the AAAM 44.9:AJ Jet Engine aerospace certification has the additional prerequisite of AS9100 certification.  Since AS9100 encompasses all features of ISO 9000 (with additional requirements relating to quality and safety), ISO 9000 is not separately required of applicants that can provide documentation of AS9100 certification.
