In service since 1996

airplus was established in 1996 at Friedrichshafen International Airport (EDNY) and has since developed into one of the largest European aircraft maintenance facilities for piston, turboprop and jet aircraft.

Our Most Valuable Asset – Your Trust

Our value proposal

airplus has set itself the task of providing the technical basis for private European aviation to become the natural means of transport of the 21st century.

As EASA and FAA certified “one-stop shop” for up to 20t, airplus offers all types of work on the airframe, engines, interior and all avionics from a single source. This includes all the necessary testing, approvals and CAMO. In addition, not only is airplus the official dealer for Garmin, Rockwell Collins and Cessna spare parts, but also the authorised service centre for Cessna, Beechcraft, Diamond, Austro Engine, Eclipse & Twin Commander – and centre of competence for Embraer Phenom and Cessna Citation.

To further extend our services to customers, we developed our own airplus products, which you will not find in any manufacturer’s catalogue. This way we are able to offer pilots, passengers and aircraft owners even more comfort, safety and technical finesse. These special and individual solutions make our airplus portfolio totally unique.
