General Atomics subsidiary takes on Dornier 228 manufacturing

1st March 2021 - 10:25 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

RUAG International completes sale of RUAG Aerospace Services to General Atomics Europe.

RUAG International announced on 1 March that it has transferred all shares in its RUAG Aerospace Services subsidiary to General Atomics Europe (GA-Europe).

Neither RUAG nor GA-Europe have disclosed the financial terms of the transaction.

Production and maintenance activities for the Dornier 228 and Dornier 228 Next Generation aircraft — as well as maintenance of NH90 helicopters for the German Armed Forces — is now conducted by GA-Europe at Oberpfaffenhofen.

The two companies agreed the deal in September 2020.

The sale of RUAG Aerospace Services aligns with the concept of unbundling and realigning RUAG International, which was approved by the Swiss Federal Council in March 2019.

According to Shephard Defence Insight, the Dornier 228/228NG is in use with 14 air forces and navies worldwide.
