RUAG gets approval as manufacturer of the Do 228 New Generation
RUAG has announced that its RUAG Aerospace Services GmbH in Oberpfaffenhofen has got the official approval by the European Aviation Safety Agency EASA as production organization of the Do 228 NG (New Generation).
With this approval all requirements are met to produce and deliver the first customer aircraft still this year. The new Do 228 NG differs from its predecessor in particular by an up-to-date glass cockpit and a clearly quieter and more efficient 5-blade propeller.
During the Singapore Air Show the conclusion of an agreement was announced with the Norwegian Lufttransport AS for one Do 228 NG which will be used for passenger and cargo transport on unpaved airfields in Norway.
