Fokker Techniek has signed a contract with K5-Aviation for its first-ever widebody VIP completion. Roland van Dijk, co-CEO of Fokker Techniek, is extremely excited to be awarded with this contract and show the market that Fokker Techniek can handle widebody conversions.

“We appreciate the direct lines with the knowledgeable engineering and production people plus their hands-on way of working. The whole project team is focused on delivering a great end result," says Erik Scheidt, managing director and pilot at K5-Aviation. “We have been accustomed to their skills in previous projects and will need same during the ACJ330 outfit.”

“It’s really the next level and we are very honored that K5-Aviation has entrusted us with this prestigious project”, said van Dijk. “We have started preparations and will soon implement more changes to the company in order to keep up with the continuous growth in our Aircraft Completions and Conversions segment. Our orderbook demands additional workforce and an increase of in-house activities.”

Luca Madone of K5-Aviation says, “Fokker Techniek and K5-Aviation have a rich history with past projects and this new contract is a continuation of our relation. We fully believe in the strengths of Fokker Techniek; this agile organisation has proven its skills before and we expect the same again on this much larger aircraft.”
