How does the Aero Documents platform work?
Once you upload drawings and/or documents, our system hosts your documents for rounds of reviews and holds the designee’s approval until a financial transaction has been accepted and transfers payment to the designee.
How is my data backed up?
Can an engineering company or MRO use Aero Documents to deliver documents to their customers in an exchange for payment?
Can a large company use Aero Documents for special projects?
Yes! Contact us for special project assistance.
What if I don’t have a drawing?
Once you sign into Aero Documents, you have the opportunity to communicate with our engineering experts to assist you to start a project and get the engineering details you need developed.
When do I need a DER approval?
When you need FAA approved data in support of a major alteration, major repair or Supplemental Type Certificate (STC).
What kind of data and designs can a DER approve?
Aircraft drawings, reports, and analysis for electrical, structural, and mechanical systems changes. There are also flight test DERs that support changes that may need a new Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS).
How much does it cost?
There is no monthly fee to use Aero Documents. There is a convenience and platform fee included in each transaction.
How do I pay my DER?
What if I already have a DER?
When you start a project, you have the option to send your DER a link to sign up for Aero Documents. Once your DER is signed up, all your project design and communication(s) are secure and backed up.
Can I use Aero Documents without using a designee?
Absolutely! When you start a project, you have the option to be paired with one of our designees from our network. However, we can also help you set up your account so your data is stored and the review process is solely for inter-company reviews.
What happens after I sign up?
What if my client isn’t on Aero Documents?
How do I get paid?

How fast do I get paid?
