Deutsche Aircraft pushes back EIS date for it’s new Eco regional airliner

German airframer Deutsche Aircraft has pushed back the Entry into Service (EIS) date for the D328Eco regional turborpop until late 2027.

Deutsche Aircraft says that it will use the extra time to further collaborate with potential operators & suppliers and to develop new features such as enhanced Short Take-off and Landing (STOL) capabilities.

Dave Jackson, CEO of Deutsche Aircraft, remarks: “While we have had to realign the EIS for our D328eco, we are taking this opportunity to investigate further product enhancements and satisfied by the tremendous progress of the programme to date: our certification panels with EASA are advancing successfully, start of construction for our Final Assembly Line in Leipzig has begun and we have secured over 95% of our suppliers, including those providing access to strategic growth markets. We will be announcing further milestones during the upcoming Farnborough International Airshow.

Building on the renowned in-service , the new D328eco leads the market with innovative elements including a state-of-the-art Garmin avionics suite and PW127XT-S engines which will be fully compatible with SAF-PtL at EIS. These advancements make the D328eco an advanced and unique 21st century turboprop, ready for the future of aviation. Most importantly, we are pleased to receive continued interest and demand for the D328eco from different segments across the market.

Our success would not be possible without the dedication of our team, support from our industry partners and the substantial involvement of regional and multi-role operators during product development.”

We will be delivering full coverage of the Farnborough International Airshow and will bring you any updates as they are announced.
