Deutsche Aircraft has selected three additional suppliers for its D328eco programme as development activities at the German manufacturer continue.

Announced at the Aircraft Supplier Summit in Leipzig – the future production site of the D328eco – the selections include Bucher Leichtbau to supply the aircraft’s galley and partitions, Elbe Flugzeugwerke for fuselage floor panels, and Reiser Simulation and Training for an engineering cockpit simulator.

Deutsche Aircraft says the latest tranche of suppliers were chosen “based on their time-to-market capabilities, supply chain resilience, sustainability across the lifecycle of the product and economic reality”.

Supply chain partners already signed up to the programme include Pratt & Whitney Canada, which will provide the D328eco’s twin PW127XT-S engines, and Heggemann, which will develop the landing gear.

Service entry for the D328eco – a stretched and modernised version of the original Dornier D328 twin-turboprop – is due in the second half of 2026.
