General Aviation in the Upwind Zone
Why Aufwind was established
AUFWIND is a small Team of General Aviation Enthusiasts and Specialists. We once discovered that there is benefit of delivering engineering, maintenance, research & development, technical advice, airworthiness service, education, flight training and much more out of one single bureau to GA stakeholders. Have a look at our growing portfolio below.
Flight OPs Project: ESA AIR-SOS
Validating Detection Of Marine Litter From Space.
The project aims to collect high-quality and high-resolution data on floating objects in coastal waters near the mouth of the River Elbe. It will use a seaplane on clear and still (low wind) days to collect data at the same time as the Copernicus Sentinel-2 satellites collect data of the same location. In this way, the project will assess and validate the ability of Sentinel-2 and developed algorithms to monitor floating plastic marine litter from space.Learn More Abour ESA AIR-SOS

Further Education for Pilot Owners
Get a coaching in EASA maintenance regulations and be able to answer for yourself and your privatley used aircraft many questions like: What is an AMP? Who can release work on my aircraft? What documentation do I need? Can I do repairs myself? We're offering online seminars in two languages.
EASA Part-ML maintenance regulations allow owners and operators or aircraft to define deviations from the maintenance procedures on her responsibility in the Aircraft Maintenance Program. In this online workshop the participants can close their knowledge gaps individually and develop their individual Aircraft Maintenance Program for self-declaration.
Maintenance and Airworthiness
Understanding the technical details of your aircraft improves flight safety and fun in owning a general aviation aircraft. We welcome you as involved owner to assist in all maintenance, airworthiness, modification, or repair tasks under supervision of our certifying staff.
While Maintenance is mostly done in the workshop, control of an aircrafts’ airworthiness is mainly a desk-job and done in the computer. Aufwind supports owners in fulfilling their duties in keeping the maintenance files current and in alignment with the regulations
Before an aircraft is purchased, it needs to be reviewed technically. The owner needs not only know if the aircraft is safe to fly, but also what kind of maintenance tasks will most likely occur within the first seasons of operation, if the maintenance file is in alignment with the regulations and if the aircraft is in the condition as advertised.
Registration and receiving agent service for D-reg aircraft Based on §3 LuftVZO, any citizen of an EASA member state is legally authorised to register an aircraft to his name in Germany, as long as a German residing receiving agent is named. Aufwind will assist you in registering your new aircraft in Germany.
Further Education for Pilot Owners and Technical Personel
Within the EASA regulations a pilot-owner has many options to be involved in the maintenance of their aircraft. If you want to learn how to perform maintenance on your aircraft, book one of our pilot-owner-maintenance training courses and perform typical Pilot-Owner Maintenance tasks on your own plane guided by technical trained staff.
