Innovative lightweight aircraft from Niedersachsen

Company founder Jörg Hollmann, turning a bright idea into a thriving business.

The aim: a high-performance aircraft weighing just 120 kilogrammes

JH Aircraft GmbH was founded in early 2016 to develop a high-performance aircraft weighing no more than 120 kilogrammes.

Company founder Jörg Hollmann can draw on over 25 years’ experience in aircraft development, working on construction and calculations for sports aircraft, the structural mechanics of passenger planes and much more. He’s also an active pilot; more than 30 years’ flying routine helped this engineer develop a practical, well-thought-out product.
