story

Flugdienst Fehlhaber GmbH was founded in 1970 as a family business on the Koblenz-Winningen airfield . The company's headquarters were in Neustadt (Wied) . In the first few years, the aviation company mainly acted as a flight school and sightseeing flight company . From the mid-1970s, a further mainstay was created alongside passenger flights with cargo flights. Before the school was spun off into Rhein-Mosel-Flug GmbH, the Fehlhaber flight service had up to 9 aircraft (mostly single-engine) in operation in peak years. In 2006, the company primarily only operated cargo flights (based at Cologne / Bonn Airport ) with turbine-powered aircraft of the Reims-Cessna F406 type(Caravan II). All airports in Europe that could be used for this type of aircraft were approached. Flugdienst Fehlhaber GmbH (FFG) has stopped operating since 2006. [1]
