What our employees say

I grew up in Dresden, so obviously I heard about EFW early on. Then, when I was a teenager, I started being interested in aviation and planes - applying for a job here was the easiest decision of my life. Now, many years later, I keep working on the most different planes and projects, never getting tired of it. It is hard work, but the satisfaction of seeing a plane I contributed to, soaring through the sky, can’t be described.

Christopher Preller, Aircraft mechanics

What our trainees say

EFW’s team has been very welcoming, taking me onto different projects since day one. I’m thrilled at the thought that the projects I work on daily will one day be taking off and fly for years.
