328 Support Services GmbH Partners With Germany to Form DRA GmbH

328 Support Services GmbH (328SSG), the type certificate holder of the Dornier 328 aircraft, announced the formation of a new aircraft original equipment manufacturer, DRA GmbH.

Representatives of 328SSG, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) and the German Federal & State of Saxony ministries, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish DRA GmbH’s final assembly line for the D328NEU aircraft, a derivative of the Dornier 328, at Leipzig/Halle Airport, in the State of Saxony. The project anticipates the creation of up to 250 new jobs at the production facilities in Leipzig, and an additional 100 plus jobs at 328SSG’s HQ in Oberpfaffenhofen, near Munich.

The aim of the upgraded D328NEU is to offer a suitable replacement solution for ageing ‘in service’ aircraft in the aviation market, as well as supporting the global market demand of new route development.
