Ferry Flight Management
Both Do328 variants were big sellers in the USA. Their reliability, relative low maintenance cost and high comfort helped the Turboprop and the Jet to several fleet successes at the East Coast and the Midwest when compared to direct competitors.
Many routes have now grown so well that bigger aircraft are needed. The out-of-service Do328 aircraft found new owners in Europe, who want reliable ferry flights to be organised. This is very important, as it means transferring the aircraft from FAA authority to EASA rules – with all necessary applications and sometimes through difficult weather.
To this day, we have successfully organised carried out 11 ferry flights from the USA to our dockyard base and elsewhere. Examples are shown here (2006):
Ferry flight preparation after long-time storage in Kingman / Arizona (2006). The ferry Flights went from Kingman via Myrtle Beach, Goose Bay and Iceland to Braunschweig/Germany.
