QinetiQ accelerates the flight testing and evaluation of new and modified crewed and uncrewed aircraft. We deliver agility, resources and expertise to support the constantly evolving needs of flight test professionals, whilst meeting the growing demand for experimentation and effective test and evaluation of increasingly sophisticated aviation systems. QinetiQ works with system integrators and aircraft manufacturers, helping them to exploit new technologies and integrate advanced systems into platforms. Our test and evaluation expertise and access to ground-breaking facilities enable us to shorten product development cycles, identifying technical, financial and operational risk. Applying this knowledge for space systems is equally important.



Based in the South West of the UK, Testia Ltd. has become a reference for training and EN4179 certification in non-destructive testing (NDT). Our Bristol based training centre provide courses for all NDT methods, Ultrasonics, Eddy Current, Magnetic Particle, Dye Penetrant, Radiography and PAUT as well as specialised courses. Our level 3 experts will welcome you in to our dedicated facilities where participants can get their hands on real parts, components and aircraft structure. Alternatively, training sessions can be given at your facility should you wish to do so.


Testia Group offers in-house and on-site inspection services during manufacturing and maintenance processes in accordance with our PART 145, FAR 145 and TCCA 145 certifications.
