ANDREAS 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.

STEPHAN BAUER

AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN

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.

SIEGFRIED KNOLL

AIRCRAFT AND PISTON ENGINE 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.

OLAF ROHRER

AIRCRAFT AND PISTON ENGINE TECHNICIAN

Maintenance and repair of piston engines and propeller aircraft
Olaf Rohrer specializes in maintaining piston engines from the 1920s through the 1940s. His particular area of expertise is the internal components and functions of the complex DB 605 engine. Other core tasks include maintaining the Me 108 and Me 109, and overhauling/modifying the components and systems in piston engines and aircraft structures. At the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight since 2008. In the industry since 1988.

MIKE SCHWARZ

AIRCRAFT AND PISTON ENGINE TECHNICIAN

Maintenance and repair of piston engines and propeller aircraft
Mike Schwarz specializes in Me 108 and Me 109 aircraft technology and has been maintaining piston engines since 1990. He is passionate about engines, whether it’s the DB 605 in the Me 109, the Argus engine in the Me 108 or the Bristol Cherub III in the M17. It comes as no surprise that he has also held a commercial helicopter pilot license (CPL) since 2005. At the Messerschmitt Museum of Flight since 2008. In the industry since 2008.

CHRISTIAN BETZ

AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN

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.
