Ruag Aerospace Services (Stand K95) is here promoting the Do 228 NG, an upgraded version of the Dornier 228 twin turboprop. “Asia–especially the southeast and Far East–is the most important region for us,” sales director Thomas
Imke told AIN.

The company sees a lot of local operators using small, remote airfields. “Our aircraft is certified for gravel,” Imke said. Joining other 228s operating in the region will be six whose recent sales account for 50 percent of the company’s total order book.
Ruag says it is on track to complete certification and first delivery of its Do 228 NG in March.
