Competence for special aircraft
Some planes have a mission beyond merely transporting passengers or freight: they are intended to perform astronomical observations or parabolic flights. These special mission aircraft are highly welcome in our hangars as they give us the opportunity to fully exploit all dimensions of our technological capabilities, creativity and craftsmanship.
When building an isolation ward aboard an aircraft or overhauling a plane to carry a telescope weighing 17 tons, no routine procedures are applicable: this demands individual technical solutions (for the complete lifecycle of the aircraft). Thanks to our in-depth engineering know-how combined with the Allowance to Design and Approve Modifications and Repairs we are capable of developing and deploying these solutions. Close relationships with suppliers, fast access to OEMs and our trustbased relationships with authorities form the backbone that enables us to master such complex technical tasks.
