EXTRA Aircraft Establishes US Operations

The USA Facility Will Be Operational In Late 2022

Extra Aerobatic Airplanes Founder and CEO Walter Extra has confirmed the establishment of Extra Aircraft USA LP based at the DeLand Airport (KDED), to be based in DeLand, Florida.

Extra USA was conceived of to provide factory authorized support for spares and maintenance to all North America Extra aircraft owners. Additionally, all new Extra models of aircraft bound for North America will come into the USA via DeLand and checked out by factory authorized staff prior to delivery. Extra has been a majuor player in the aerobatic aircraft community for more than 40 years -- with the US being a primary market.

Walter Extra commented, “I am very pleased to continue our success in the USA and announce this new Extra facility for our North American customers.  We will provide AOG and complete spares support from DeLand backed up by the factory in Germany.  We will also grow our service offerings for scheduled maintenance, such as annual inspections and the 1,000-hour inspection as well as unscheduled maintenance."

Duncan Koerbel will be the General Manager of Extra USA and be based out of KDED. Mr. Koerbel is a seasoned aerospace executive with a thousand hours in type in Extras.  He will work very closely with Eric Extra, CEO Extra Aircraft Maintenance, and Marcus Extra, Manager of Production, to position the new factory direct model to support the fleet well into the future.

Marcus Extra noted, “We have an excellent order backlog and continue to be pleased with the demand for our new NG as well as the 330SC, which was just flown to its eighth world championship in Poland.  This arrangement will allow us to be even closer to our customers.”

Eric Extra added, “We have initially leased hangar facilities in DeLand but are exploring a purpose-built option for the long-term future.  Marcus and I are excited to continue to grow the company our father founded forty years ago.”

The USA facility will be operational in late 2022 to support the delivery of the next Extra NG and begin spare parts and maintenance activity.
