Stavatti Aerospace is led by Chairman and CEO, Christopher R. Beskar. Mr. Beskar is Stavatti’s Strategic Leader and Chief Designer. Mr. Beskar founded Stavatti Aerospace Ltd in 2014. The company was reorganized as a Wyoming C Corporation in December 2019 Supporting Mr. Beskar, Stavatti is guided by a qualified management team and board of directors. Owning an established corporate culture, Stavatti’s leadership approach emphasizes growth and individual achievement. Concentrating upon a leadership driven methodology, that stresses individual responsibility, Stavatti is focused upon Leadership rather than Management. Individuals employed on Stavatti program teams are of significant talent and ability.
In so doing, a tightly-knit group is integrated with a single goal in-mind: produce a fantastic product. The organizational mission of Stavatti Aerospace is to provide a leadership framework that can guide and direct the operations of a substantial aerospace manufacturer that is engaged in multiple product programs. On the operations level, each specific aircraft program team, will maintain their own program management, sales and production groups specific to their particular program. Stavatti Aerospace will employ a specific executive leadership team that will provide program strategic leadership. To ensure scientists, developers and engineers maintain stable employment, Stavatti Aerospace manages program engineering talent, transferring engineers from one project to another based upon program needs. The result is an enterprise that maintains a core group of management and engineering talent that is then applied to specific projects that are focused upon certification, production, distribution and sale of their particular project, as well as effectively undertake multiple programs simultaneously.
Stavatti aircraft are developed and produced by a specific Stavatti program/project team that draws from the strategic leadership, management and enterprise assets of Stavatti Aerospace Ltd. From a business perspective, each project is undertaken as a stand-alone, independently incorporated business that is owned in-part by Stavatti Aerospace and in-part by a joint venture Strategic Partner. Organized to enable each aircraft program to be independently managed and financed while isolating the greater Stavatti Aerospace enterprise from liability exposure, all aircraft projects will involve engineering, development and production elements contributed by partners throughout the aerospace enterprise.
Drawing from the capabilities of organic Integrated Program Teams as well as strategic partners and Integrated Program Teams, Stavatti is able to undertake multiple advanced aircraft development and production projects simultaneously through the orchestration and proper deployment of capable teams. Stavatti has significant capabilities to draw from including qualified persons in USA and worldwide to immediately provide engineering, development, production and business solutions.
ENGINEERING & DESIGN
Stavatti Aerospace performs the complete engineering design and development of new aircraft beginning with concept development, through advanced and detail design phases. Engineering includes completion of concept and feasibility studies, business planning, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA), complete engineering and detail parts design using tools including SolidWorks Premium, CATIA and Creo. Stavatti is responsible for all aspects of engineering and serves as program lead for all projects. Stavatti currently has engineering teams in the United States and worldwide and can delegate engineering activities per strategic partnership agreements. Stavatti’s engineering philosophy emphasizes the importance of superior concept design married to sound business plans that address valuable niche markets or clearly apparent commercial opportunities. From a solid concept, advanced and detailed engineering is conducted using an Integrated Project Team (IPT) dedicated to complete system engineering throughout the design life of the vehicle.
FLIGHT TEST & CERTIFICATION
Stavatti Aerospace will conduct military aircraft flight testing using contracted flight test centers that will likely include the Air Force Flight Test Center (AFFTC) at Edwards AFB. Stavatti naval aircraft will likely be flight tested at NAS Pax River. Stavatti may also perform flight testing at dedicated facilities throughout the US, Europe and Asia. Stavatti benefits from in-house DERs for certification with an emphasis upon certifying aircraft to the FAA FAR Part 23 and FAR Part 25 standard. Stavatti also outsources qualified organizations, such as AESI, to perform FAA type certification. Stavatti Commercial Transport aircraft will be Type Certified as a Transport Category aircraft under Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 25-Airworthiness Standards for Transport Category Airplanes (14 CFR Part 25). Stavatti military aircraft will be engineered to comply with relevant MILSTD and MIL-SPEC requirements, including MIL-HDBK-516B Airworthiness Certification Criteria and will be properly certified/qualified to meet acquisition requirements for the USAF, USN and USMC.
Stavatti Aerospace produces all prototype aircraft in-house from systems, components and major subassemblies produced by qualified industry team members. Stavatti benefits from a 100+ member industry team to supply the highest quality systems for final in-house integration and assembly. For production of aircraft for the US DoD, Stavatti selects US based Industry Team Members and manufacturing partners to provide 100% of all airframe systems, components and equipment to ensure 100% compliance with the Buy American Act. Stavatti will perform primary assembly, systems integration and flight check of all production aircraft at a Stavatti Final Assembly Plant. Immediate prototyping and production work is being conducted at facilities in the USA. Stavatti conducts all prototyping using low cost, flexible tooling and rapid prototyping methods, including laser metal scintering for low volume prototyping.
