The Dornier DO228 is designed as a reliable commuter aircraft. Due to its modern wing the aircraft is capable to travel fast and to use short and unpaved runways at low costs. Strong engines, excellent handling qualities and the unpressurized spacious rectangular cabin make it an ideal platform for any kind of airborne research. As a twin engine aircraft it is capable to perform extended missions overhead remote areas and open water.
The Dornier DO228 is a very reliable and robust aircraft designed for any kind of airwork operation. Its simple and strong mechanical design as well as its two turboprop engines makes the aircraft also ideal for operation out of short and unpaved airstrips.
Due to world wide operation, the aircraft are airline-like equipped. Modern avionic systems and on-going development makes the 228 a highly efficient tool.
