Deutsche Aircraft receives three certifications to confirm quality and environmental standards

MUNICH, 16th March 2022 – Deutsche Aircraft GmbH announces that it has obtained three certifications according to international standards. These confirm the commitment of Deutsche Aircraft of adhering to the highest international quality and environmental standards to ensure constant and sustainable growth.

Recent audit results in accordance with EN 9100:2018 (former AS 9100D), including the requirements of EN ISO 9001:2015, enhances Deutsche Aircraft highest’s quality management standards and brings valuable benefits to the company.

Receiving the EN ISO 14001:2015 environmental standards certification for the first time confirms Deutsche Aircraft’s establishment and application to an Environmental Management System which covers design, production, maintenance and completion of the Dornier 328 Series Aircraft, including worldwide customer support and supply chain as well as management for operators. 

The EN ISO certificates are world’s highest and most recognized standard of quality and environmental management. They demonstrate Deutsche Aircraft’s commitments to continuously improving its quality performance while reducing the environmental footprint of its operations and services, as well as taking concrete action to combat climate change. 

Confirming company-wide state of the art management systems 

Along with its compliance to the current regulations for health protection and occupational safety, Deutsche Aircraft is committing towards stronger environmental goals and objectives. Deutsche Aircraft also takes one step ahead by placing a more rigorous attention upon its suppliers and partners’ selection and is aiming to develop more sustainability-driven processes with higher efficiency and cost savings. 

Dave Jackson, Managing Director of Deutsche Aircraft, said: “We are very proud to have been awarded with these three certifications. It is a reward for the team, confirming the outstanding work we have put into our internal processes to meet global standards and better support the ongoing development of the D328eco™. Our mission is to use the D328eco to drive aviation's transition to more sustainable flights. This goes hand in hand with consequent health protection and occupational safety.”

Deutsche Aircraft fully commits to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

As a purpose-driven OEM, Deutsche Aircraft is committed to operating as a responsible business by aligning its strategy with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Those are part of a global effort to change the corporate strategy and to support customers' efforts into more environmentally focused strategies to help companies reduce their environmental impact. This includes all aspects of quality management and customer satisfaction, as well as detailed and rigorously enforced health, safety and environmental protocols throughout the organisation.

To meet these requirements and improve performance, Deutsche Aircraft regularly provides comprehensive internal training opportunities for all employees to ensure that all departments comply with the latest health, safety and environmental standards. More than a year ago, Deutsche Aircraft also established a dedicated "Sustainability Team" to support the efforts of aligning with these processes both internally and externally.

- Source: Cirium
- Schedules data: full year 2019 vs. 2020 – excludes non-scheduled flying
- In-service data:
- For 2019 the data is dated April while for 2020 it’s dated October. We wanted to compare “shoulder month” to shoulder month, however April 2020 wouldn’t have captured the immediate impact of Coronavirus as our dataset classes aircraft as in storage after 3 months of inactivity.

New talent appointed to strengthen the Deutsche aircraft programme

As part of its continued support of Deutsche Aircraft’s D328eco aircraft programme, 328 Support Services GmbH recently appointed a panel of “talent experts” to further strengthen the overall team and ensure strong management structure and processes are in place across the D328eco development programme. Today we focus on the Engineering & Programme departments.

On the programme side, Mr. Peter Spyrka has been appointed Director of Programmes. Peter brings over 20 years’ experience in the global aerospace industry with engineering & development works on both civil and military aircraft programmes. Prior to joining Deutsche Aircraft, Peter worked at Airbus, leading the Hybrid Electric Propulsion System development programme for demonstrator projects. He also worked for Fairchild Dornier back in the late 1990’s.

In Engineering, Mr. Jean-Damien Mazeau has been appointed as our new Head of Propulsion Systems. Jean-Damien also brings more than 20 years’ aeronautical experience to Deutsche Aircraft, having built most of his career at Airbus. He was most recently involved with the A320neo’s entry into service, in charge of propulsion system’s global technical Support.

Last but not least, Dr. Stefan Brunner brings more than two decades of expertise and experience to his position as Head of Airframe. Throughout his career, Stefan spent more than 17 years working directly for the Airbus group where he was heavily involved with a wide variety of major engineering programmes on both commercial aviation and defence & space programmes. In his new role, Stefan will be responsible for design, analysis and modification of the D328eco airframe’s primary structure (Fuselage, Fairings, Wing, Empennage), as well as establishing new processes and procedures to complete aircraft development. Finally, he is responsible for ensuring compliance with the European Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulations.

In addition to Peter, Jean Damien and Stefan, we are also proud to announce that we have been busy hiring new talent from not only within Germany, but from all over the world. Coming from a variety of companies within the aerospace industry, we look forward to utilising our new team members’ skills and expertise to achieve the entry into service scheduled for 2025.

All are great assets to the current Engineering & Programme team and will, without a doubt, help support Deutsche Aircraft’s development programme over the coming years.
