Announced at this year’s Aircraft Supplier Summit, Deutsche Aircraft has selected a number of further key suppliers to develop its D328eco programme.

Based on their time-to-market capabilities, supply chain resilience, sustainability across the life-cycle of the product and economic reality, these include Bucher Leichtbau AG, Elbe Flugzeugwerke and Reiser Simulation and Training.

Deutsche Aircraft has selected Bucher Leichtbau AG for the galley and partitions for the D328eco cabin, Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) will supply the floor panels for the D328eco fuselage, which will be designed by Deutsche Aircraft, and Reiser Simulation and Training GmbH [Reiser] will develop and provide the D328eco Engineering Cockpit Simulator, a fully instrumented flight deck connected to a high-fidelity aircraft simulation.

On the Bucher partnership, a Deutsche Aircraft spokesperson commented: “Since the beginning of discussions, Bucher has shown a clear understanding of our requirements. Their decades-long know-how regarding cabin interior monuments and lightweight construction whilst being open-minded regarding innovation and the brilliant finishing quality on the product makes them the perfect partner for the galley and partitions for the D328eco.”
