Rebuilding – aviation legends
in action

Our services

Bringing vintage aircraft to life

Aircraft from a bygone era are worthy of special appreciation. We take the greatest care in our faithful reproduction of these fascinating classics. Museum pieces are often the starting point; numerous historical photos and sketches also provide us with orientation. Our manufacturing combines traditional methods with the latest techniques to achieve the optimum result. Our services include:

  • Completely rebuilding airworthy aircraft types based on old construction plans
  • Searching for production documents
  • New production of construction drawings
  • 3D scanning of aircraft or aircraft components for data acquisition

It is always a particular highlight for us to bring one of these unique classics to life. The world's first all-metal aircraft, the Junkers F 13 for example, which we have faithfully reproduced.
We are happy to admit it fills us with pride and joy when these replicas leave our halls as airworthy aircraft.
