We are transforming the way the world travels. We are achieving the goal of introducing easy access to affordable, energy efficient, and cost effective environmentally friendly aircraft. It is our responsibility to reduce our environmental impact and stimulate sustainable economic and social growth along the way.
We want to accelerate the aviation industry’s transition towards zero emissions flights using the D328eco™.
As the only existing platform that is capable of fulfilling the efficiency and performance requirements for a modern, more eco-friendly aircraft, we are starting the transition to a greener flying future today.
We are re-imagining flight. Less fuel. Less carbon emissions. Less impact on our planet.
Deutsche Aircraft traces its route back to the dawn of aviation drawing upon the famous heritage of Dornier Flugzeugwerke, a German aircraft manufacturer founded in 1914. Over the course of its long lifespan Dornier Flugzeugwerke produced many notable designs for both the civil and military markets and is still recognised today as a aviation pioneer.
Nearly a century later, 328 Support Services GmbH (328SSG) was founded. It took over the Type Certificate (TC) rights for the Dornier 328 platform (D328®) from Avcraft in January 2006 and as part of the package, the company also purchased the Dornier 428 TC and other assets.
