A recurrent argument in the aviation industry is whether people can use PMA parts or is OEM parts a must when it comes to buying parts?
To start off what is PMA? PMA stands for Parts Manufacturer Approval. PMA parts get production and design approval issued by the FAA. The FAA approves of PMA parts if they are manufactured following with FAA accepted procedure, they need to meet the FAA standards of airworthiness.
OEM is the Original Equipment Manufacturer. For the longest time, original engineer manufacturing had a monopoly on the industry. This monopoly made it harder and harder for plane enthusiasts to get the parts they needed because of sky-high prices and backorders.
Replacement parts started in the 1950’s when pilots needed parts for outmoded WWII planes. Over time, manufacturing companies started popping up to offer those replacement parts. Gradually, controls were added that helped make PMA certification more aligned with OEM certification. Since 2011 FAA updated their regulations. Now, PMA has a different kind of production certificate which gets rid of many differences between OEM and PMA manufacturing.
Still, ever since the commercialization of PMA parts, OEM’s have worked hard to try to delegitimize PMA parts. For starters, OEM’s started a taint campaign saying that PMA parts are knockoffs and will never be as good as the original. They also make suggestions that PMA parts put people at risk, that there is no guarantee that a PMA part will perform as well as OEM parts do.
As a rebuttal PMA parts feel as though their parts are not only similar but that PMA parts are superior air parts. They have the advantage to look at OEM parts performance and then improve their parts based on the results.
OEM Brake Parts vs. PMA Brake Parts
Original Engineer Manufacturer brakes have the luxury of already being on the aircraft when it is first made; that way they have an automatic approval. With PMA parts, they have to prove their worthiness to the FAA with multiple tests. Since PMA parts want to be approved upon the first tests with the FAA, they make sure that they exceed expectations to grantee approval on the first time around.
In conclusion,OEM and PMA parts have to go through the same FAA regulation tests to be certified. However, PMA parts can exceed regular test expectations as a result of the rigorous tests they go through to become certified.

The integrated engines are destined to be ultimately delivered for the end use of Scandinavian airline, Widerøe Airlines. Vice President of Commercial Engine Programs at Pratt & Whitney, Graham Webb states that,
"The delivery of these first two production engines is an exciting milestone for us as we continue to work together with Embraer and Widerøe in preparation of a successful introduction into revenue service"
and could not be more excited to be working with them.
The engine was first introduced in the year 2016 were it was found to be very efficient. To date the PW1900G engine has proven to decrease the burning of fuel by 16 percent, noise print by 75 percent, and nitrogen oxide emissions by 50 percent according to aviationpros.com.
Embraers São José dos Campos, San Paolo, Brazil last line facility received the engines in late December of 2017 with set schedule to insert them the following February.
Upon delivery the engine has received type certificate from the Brazilian Aviation Authority known as the Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC). This certificate is similar to the FAA Part 33 type certification and is an essential step onto obtaining the Part 25 Type Certification to be granted to the aircraft.
Due the E190-E2 engines capabilities it has won the trust of about three aircraft platforms to be able to be integrated into them. Its unique performance and different style of engine composition makes this type an engine take precedence over engines for years to come.

Not only is STMicroelectronics changing the game with a wireless battery charger, they are also raising the bar by making the charging time shorter. Most technology is becoming wireless, for example, wireless headphones are the new big thing. This technology had the ability to be wireless because of an advanced communication between a receiver and transmitter. Not only are these transmitters able to deliver content, they can also deliver energy used to charge devices, along with different amounts of energy allowing a faster charge time.
This battery is still a very new product on the market, and therefore the specs can be confusing and may not provide all needed information for customers. For example, there are warnings that things need to be done a certain way, but then there is no explanation of what the correct method is. It may be because the company itself is still working on perfecting it to ensure it is safe for use. There are notes on the specs that stated the product was not completed tested when it was produced. This does not mean it is not safe or that you should be left in the dark, a simple call to STMicroelectronics for a current update could be the solution. As the product becomes more common, and ST has a chance to test it more thoroughly, these specs will most likely change, and the confusion will be straightened out.
