FAI Aviation Group, Germany’s leading global provider of mission-critical aviation services celebrates 30 years of business jet operations.


FAI offers fixed-wing air ambulance, special missions, charter and aircraft management, as well as full MRO services.  It was founded in 1987 as a private repatriation club flying helicopters, moving into business jet flying two years later.

Over the past three decades, Nuremberg-based FAI has grown its fixed wing fleet from a single Citation 500 and two rescue helicopters (Eurocopter AS 350 and Airbus BK 117) to become Germany’s largest business jet operator with 25 jets and over 13,500 hours logged in 2018.

“The company’s growth and success is testament to our commitment to safety, service and continued investment. It also highlights the importance of our tremendous team of people, now 200-strong, who have made our business what it is today,” commented Siegfried Axtmann, FAI Aviation Group Founder and Chairman.
