ANDREAS HAFERKORN
WORKSHOP MANAGER
Maintenance of electronics and avionics in all Messerschmitt aircraft

Stefan Bauer is passionate about the electronics in these aircraft. Some of the systems are 80 years old. He works independently and carries a lot of responsibility. He has a very broad skills set that enables him to work on the ignition of a 1925 Bristol Cherub III one day and a modern digital radio system the next. He is equally at home tuning an analog rev counter or a Mode S transponder. At the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight since 2006. In the industry since 2002.

RICHARD BERINGER

AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN
Maintenance and support of jet and propeller planes

Richard Beringer is a big enthusiast of historic Messerschmitt aircraft and technology that was at the cutting edge of its time. He works primarily with turbine-powered jet aircraft and knows almost everything there is to know about them. Richard also has a wealth of experience working with the Turboméca Marboré turbojet engine in the HA 200. At the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight since 1986.
In the industry since 1981.

Maintenance and repair of the propeller-driven Me 108 and Me 109 aircraft as well as the Me 262, the world’s first jet-powered fighter aircraft

Christian Betz is fascinated by the diverse technical challenges involved in working with classic aircraft. He specializes in planes with metal- and fabric-covered structures and develops maintenance solutions that combine the technology of the 1930s through 1950s with the engineering and maintenance programs of today, developed some 80 years later. At the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight since 2014. In the industry since 1989.

AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN
Maintenance of piston engines and propeller aircraft

Siegfried “Sigi” Knoll is Europe’s DB 600 series piston engine guru. He has been fascinated by the engine of the Me 109 for more than 40 years and knows every function, every tolerance and every trick needed to maintain the Daimler Benz DB 605 piston engine. Despite being over 70, he still comes to the piston engine workshop several days a week. His encyclopedic knowledge is a crucial aid for the team there. At the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight since 2007. In the industry since 1950.

HAFERKORN

WORKSHOP MANAGER
Head of aircraft and piston engine maintenance

Andreas Haferkorn loves the diverse challenges involved in maintaining five completely different types of aircraft ranging from piston-engine powered wood and metal planes to pioneering turbine-powered jet engines. These machines – some of which are more than 80 years old – play to Andreas’ rich portfolio of technical skills on a daily basis. At the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight since 2008. In the industry since 1988.
