Deutsche Aircraft and HEGGEMANN AG announced the production readiness stage of the new landing gear, which will be compatible with the whole Dornier 328 aircraft family. The landing gear is retrofittable to both turboprop and jet of the existing in-service fleet, as well as the new D328eco aircraft.

Deutsche Aircraft has already secured 17 fixed orders plus 9 options for this new landing gear since opening the order book in February 2022, with first deliveries expected in the second half of 2024. HEGGEMANN will work on the industrialization of the supply chain set-up, to provide planning and delivery targets as well as visibility throughout the sub-tiers of this important work package. This partnership with HEGGEMANN perfectly supports current operators and new customers to address such an integral part of the aircraft.

Christian Howe, CEO of HEGGEMANN says: “We are delighted to be part of this hugely exciting programme, developed at an opportune time: not only the demand for regional travel is growing, but at the same time there is a need to supply older regional aircraft with new spare parts in order to guarantee a continuity in operation. We look forward to continue working with Deutsche Aircraft to further develop collaborative opportunities within the local supply chain and support the growing demand for the regional aviation industry.”

Nico Neumann, COO of Deutsche Aircraft comments: “The certification of the new D328eco landing gear, available via Service Bulletin, retrofittable to the entire current in-service fleet of D328® turboprop and jet fleet once more underpins Deutsche Aircraft’s ongoing effort to support the global fleet. We are glad to have such a strong and committed partner like HEGGEMANN by our side to be able to achieve our ambitious targets.”
