Actually, it's the open day on the dübendorf Air Force Center for the future of the military airfield. But the Star of the event comes from the past: the Ju-52. With an outstretched pointer finger a boy stands in front of the Hangar, enters excitedly from one foot to the other. "Daddy, daddy, why is sticks to the big Flugi? And why the Propeller is not on the floor?" The "old aunt," explains his father, should not be allowed to fly at the Moment. "It is being thoroughly repaired."
Indeed, the historical machines to rest after the Grounding by the Federal office for civil aviation (Foca), the Ju-mechanic. Because: The Foca has revoked the authorisation of the competent maintenance companies – to all of the requirements of the Supervisory authority are met.
municipalities rely on the historical aviation
On the day of the open house yesterday, Saturday, the artisans are present, nevertheless, as if they were standing at the bedside of the old aunt guard. In addition to a table, on the the innards of the machine are designed to give you information. Always the conversation turns to the future of the Ju-52, mostly around the question of when you will stand out.
Without its star engines and with taped Openings in the historical plane is a sad image. "The sight of you hurts me," says a visitor from Dübendorf. "It would be nice, would you bring the Ju back in the air."
The hope, the representatives of the three municipalities, to the airfield boundaries. Because Dübendorf, Volketswil and Wangen-Brüttisellen place on the historic aviation as the future main user of the slopes. With the open day, you weibelten for the project "a Historic airfield with work flights". Accordingly, Maintenance operations can be found in dübendorf course, if the army is once the Area is free.
On the day of the open house were able to fold the visitors to Paper planes and the memory of the Ju-52 get.
Kuno Gross arrived from the lower Zurich to dübendorf. The man is under the right wing of the Ju-52, and looks at the machine. "I've been with her twice flew without a queasy feeling," says the man. And he would do it again at any time. The Fan of the historical aviation has taken delivery of the way but also to itself to make a picture about the projects of the municipalities.
in Order to implement their Plan, they have founded a joint-stock company and GLP national councillor Martin Bäumle in the Board of Directors sent. As the managing Director of Ju-Air-in-chief Kurt Waldmeier is in office. In 2017, the municipalities took a vote and the blessing of the people, for the financing of the AG and the cover of the annual projected operating deficit of around a Million Swiss francs.
But in spite of all these efforts is highly questionable whether the municipalities are able to implement their projects. The Federal government has as the owner of the site other plans. He wants to leave the pistes of business and small aviation, in order to relieve the Zurich airport. As the operator he has determined in 2015, the airfield Dübendorf AG (FDAG), the representatives of the Business and brings together private aviation, as well as the Rega.
Only years later, the neighbouring communities with the concept in Bern. They wanted to prevent the business aviation in dübendorf and received a rebuff. "An examination of the concept showed that the important provisions of the Covenant could not be fulfilled", as stated by the Foca. The Federal government would, in addition to the FDAG liable for compensation, he would deviate from the agreement. How deep he would have to in this case in the bag grab, does not reveal the office.
Federal government does not want to comment on the Goings-on
don't want the efforts of the littoral torpedo the plans of the Federal government, Express, the Foca: "It is not a matter for the Federal government to comment on the actions of the municipalities," said spokesman Urs Holderegger. And, in the case of the designated operator of the aerodrome is whether the enterprising competition, undeterred: "We continue to drive our projects forward in a planned and count on the fact that the Federal government adheres to the agreements," says FDAG's managing Director, Urs Brütsch.
The small Jessica Cavinato from Gutenswil ZH is pulling the rope to the future of the airfield regardless. She is thrilled by aviators, because "they fly so fast". The girl wants to be a pilot and has talked therefore their parents, on the day of the open door of the "sick" aunt Ju to visit. Mother Sandra has willingly accepted. She grew up in Bern-Belp, even then, the flyers were part of your everyday life. "And today I'm here to support the Ju."
