As of December 31st 2021, Christian Kogelmann has stepped back as Managing Director at Celairion GmbH. As owner of the company, he shall continue on as airworthiness review staff and will remain involved in company strategy. The first of the new strategic decisions will be the setting up of our new branch office in Singapore.
Kirsty Bettinger is the new Managing Director of Celairion. With a master‘s degree in Aviation, Kirsty started as an aircraft mechanic, and worked for various world airlines, gathering her licences as she travelled the world. Later she moved into engineering and discovered the joys of continuing airworthiness. As a long term employee of Celairion, we trust her to continue the values of the company, while building a more stable environment for our people.
From April 1st 2022, she will move into the CAMO role of Accountable Manager. She will be supported by Martin Haas who has been a loyal employee since day one of the company. His hard work, dedication and loyalty have been instrumental in the success of the company and we are grateful that he has accepted the position of Compliance and Safety Manager.
Rainer Mühlhofer, who came to Celairion straight after graduation and experienced our in-house employee development program first hand, will step into the role of Continued Airworthiness Manager.
We place our full trust in the new generation of Celairion management, knowing that their vision will benefit the company, the people who work there as well as our clients and partners. We thank all our aviation partners for their good cooperation in the past and we look forward to a bright future with the new management team.
