Andrea and Malte Höltken have founded Aufwind GmbH i.Gr. as a new company to take on the aviation branch of Höltken Solutions GmbH.
Aufwind is the German word for the updraft experienced by birds and gliders, either based on adiabatic rise of warm air in a thermal, or through wind blowing against a ridge.
The initial focus of Aufwind will be on maintenance and operations consulting and education for pilot-owners and operators of general aviation aircraft in Europe.
In Partnership with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association Germany, Aufwind has lauchned a series of introductory seminars to light general aviation aircraft maintenance regulations for pilot-owners and aero-clubs.
Aufwind sees itself as Partner of aircraft operators and will be able to help out with its experience in aircraft operations and owner-controlled maintenance.
