Founded in 1971, Rheinland Air Service today is a recognized leader in aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO), as well as aircraft sales, support, and fueling.


History of Rheinland Air Service (RAS)

Rheinland Air Service evolved from Rheinland Air Düsseldorf, which began with a focus on general aviation. Since then, RAS has greatly expanded into also being a respected leader in business and commercial aviation, providing a comprehensive range of expert aircraft MRO services. RAS today is also a dealer for aircraft models including the HondaJet, TBM 900, Quest KODIAK, and WACO.

With over 40 years of technical expertise, including both EASA and FAA certifications, RAS now employs over 250 people across Europe and Africa.
