Abstract: Aerospace Organisations in the field of Aviation, Space & Defence businesses are required to mandatorily obtain Aerospace Standard AS certification in order to enter the arena. Among the aerospace standards AS 9100 D can be taken for any generic A,S&D organization while AS9110C is applicable for MRO Organisations and AS 9120B is applicable for organisations in the area of supply and distribution of aerospace items and components. The certification is awarded after a very thorough audit by International Aerospace Quality Group(IAQG) certified Aerospace auditing companies, called Certifying Bodies(CB) and the certification process is quite expensive. This paper is critically analyzing whether the AS certified companies in Bangalore have obtained perceivable results in their operation after adoption of the stringent and expensive Aerospace Quality Management System(AQMS) certification conforming to the Aerospace Standard AS 9100 D and whether the adopted procedures have incorporated QMS principles in their planned activities which can generate perceivable improvements in the organizational environment.
