Marcus Basien
Founder

"Technical complexity is fascinating – how all the bits affect the whole. Two decades of professional experience on three continents, three decades as a pilot are the basis for our creativity"


Boris Kölmel

Boris Kölmel
Founder

"Mastering challenges, developing individual solutions without losing sight of the target. That's what I love doing! Bring in my own experience, adjust to a changing environment and utilize state-of-the-art tools."


Lyssandre Rammos

"The possibility to work in all different subsystems of an aircraft, from wing to washer, then seeing and treating it as a whole, is what excites me most in this profession.
Being part of – and enjoying – every step in the design of an aircraft."


Daniel Neufeld

Daniel Neufeld

"After a decade of academic training, I find it truly rewarding to apply all the knowledge I've gained for developing new tools and practical solutions for aircraft development and certification."

"To understand the physics of a technical solution and provide reliable numerical models to optimize it, this is my day to day challenge.
Follow all the steps of the creation of a part, from the first hand made sketch to its final assembly, is very exciting"


Maarten Korenromp

Maarten Korenromp

"I never get tired of looking at a product, holding it in my hands, observing it in action, after having helped shape it, having seen it develop on screen.
Fullfilling the requirements while still retaining flexibility, and allowing room for creativity."
