The future production of the Symphony family of high-wing piston singles has been secured following a successful bid for the aircraft's two production facilities. German manufacturer Ostmecklenburgische Flugzeugbau (OMF) went into bankruptcy protection in December last year, with its Canadian subsidiary OMF Aircraft placed into receivership by the Quebec government's investment arm SGF, and later reformed as Symphony Aircraft Industries (Flight International, 20-27 April). OMF's assets have now been acquired by OMF Flugzeugwerke, which plans to continue certification work on the four-seat Symphony 250 and development work on the two-seat diesel-engined 135D.
