Our crew, a very motivated and highly skilled group of historical aviation enthusiasts!
All members of the family Van Egmond and friends they are the ones which made the Egmond Vintage Wings team. With a wide crew of technical volunteers and other volunteers all specialized at another thing, young and old works together to keep these vintage aircraft alive. With the old teaching the young the skills to maintain and restore these aircraft we preserve that also in future these aircraft stay up in air. This is what we call the next generation of vintage aircraft technicians. Passing these skills over to the next generation is what is the most important for the future of these vintage aircraft
The team contains around 25 people all with their own knowledge and passion but together we work on.
We have experienced pilots, that fly all our aircraft with love and passion. Technical support helps them very great. So pilots and technicians work side by side, and make the best of it!
