2010 after an experience of 3000 flying hours, 10.000 landings and a technical background of 30 years, the time was right to start to share my experience with other aviation enthusiasts, and ART-engineering was born. "ART" stays for Aviation Related Technics and ART is pointing to the way to find out creative solutions to solve quick and efficient technical problems.
My experience as electronic engineer helps me now very well by installations of avionics and other instruments.
30 years of experience in maintenance of light aircrafts, constructed from wood and fabric, as well the modern aircrafts constructed in fibreglass and carbon.
