Business aviation operator Private Wings Flugcharter has signed a follow-on maintenance contract with Munich-based Deutsche Aircraft to support the company’s fleet of nine Fairchild Dornier 328-100 turboprops and one 328Jet. Founded in 1991, Private Wings operates from the general aviation terminal of Manching Airport near Ingolstadt, Germany.
“To operate around the clock on a varied schedule of flight missions all over Germany and Europe means that we must have the security of a dependable and accessible maintenance provider,” said Private Wings CEO Peter Gatz. “We have enjoyed a good working relationship with Deutsche Aircraft management and its skilled engineers and technicians at Oberpfaffenhofen these past five years and are delighted to renew our maintenance contract with them.”
In addition to supporting Dornier 328-series aircraft, Deutsche Aircraft is also developing the 328eco turboprop that will feature improvements in operational and maintenance costs, as well as carbon footprint reductions.
