DG Aviation GmbH, under the management of Holger Back and Sebastian Tschorn, comprises the business divisions Service & Maintenance, New Aircraft Sales and Development. The new construction of gliders is carried out by JSDG Production GmbH, which was founded for this purpose.

As a certified maintenance (Part-CAO) and design organization (DOA), DG Aviation GmbH will primarily service gliders and motor-gliders from all manufactures as well as ELA-1 aircraft.

“We have been able to significantly expand the maintenance business in recent years and have a good reputation for our excellent work across all brands. Quality at the highest level – this is what DG stands for in the area of service and maintenance. We want to be a competent partner for aircraft owners of all brands,” says Sebastian Tschorn, Head of Maintenance.

Overview on our current services:

  • Maintenance and repair of sailplanes, motor-gliders and ELA-1 aircraft of all brands
  • Airworthiness inspections
  • Propulsion systems: 2-stroke / 4-stroke / electric / Wankel / jet
  • Basic overhauls / repainting
  • Modifications in structure (e.g. winglets) and avionics
  • Repair of 2-stroke engines
  • Inspection of avionics incl. transponders and ELTs
  • Lifetime extensions

Into the future with DG Aviation!
The areas of maintenance and servicing are being consolidated and expanded – first-class service and maintenance operations for gliders of all brands as well as ELA-1 aircraft and motor gliders. “We want to further expand our traditional business and put ourselves in a position to provide the best possible aviation solutions for our customers” Sebastian Tschorn, Head of Maintenance Operations.
Our spare parts service for the DG, LS and JS brands will also be your competent partner in the future. Modifications such as the “neo series” will be extended to other aircraft types and research projects with universities will provide us with scientific insights and knowledge in a wide range of areas in the future and challenge our team.

Of course, electrification will also continue to be an important aspect in the further development of gliders. A promising collaboration with Jonker Sailplanes points to the development of a two-seater with RES propulsion, which potentially offers further development potential.
DG Aviation has set the course for a successful future. We look forward to being your competent partner in the aviation sector!
