Nuremberg, Germany-based Aero-Dienst (Booth X123) is marking at EBACE 2018 its 60th anniversary and its growth from “a regional maintenance company to become an internationally recognized full-service provider,” the company said.
“We have always been off the radar a little bit, but it helps us make our focus on [serving] customers and less on talking about it,” said Viktor Peters, Aero-Dienst managing director.
Recent moves indicate Aero-Dienst is poised for further growth. The company has extended its interior solutions, engineering services, and component maintenance sections beyond Nuremberg, and now offers these services in Vienna and Klagenfurt, Austria, as well as Landsberg am Lech in Germany.
Additionally, in the last eight months the company has added a Bombardier Challenger 300 and 604. As per its customary service, Aero-Dienst conducted the entire transaction, from market assessment through the prepurchase inspection and closing on behalf of the purchaser. That brings its fleet to nine aircraft, which includes four air ambulances operated for ADAC (General German Automobile Club), Aero-Dienst’s parent company, which comprises “a big part of our flight operations,” said Peters.
Maintenance makes up the majority of the company’s business, and it holds approvals from EASA, FAA, Aruba, Bermuda, Canada, Cayman Islands, Nigeria, Russia-CIS, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Ukraine. It also provides authorized services for Challenger, Learjet, and Falcon airframes, in addition to several engine and avionics OEMs.
