a leading European technology enterprise

IABG is a leading European technology enterprise. We focus on trend-setting high technology and science applications. We plan, implement and operate. With about 1,000 experienced and committed employees we provide our customers with solutions in the sectors Aeronautics, Space, InfoCom, Transport, Environment & Power Engineering, Automotive as well as Defence & Security.

Since 50 years we have been testing complete aircraft and individual components regarding strength and life span. In our hangars they undergo thousands of simulated flights, before commencing regular flight operation with the airlines. This applies for wide-body jets as well as for general aviation and military aircraft. We were also involved in the extensive test series of the revolutionary wide-body aircraft airbus A380 with the biggest-ever complete airframe fatigue test in the history of our company. Actually we prepare the A350 test. With our unique expertise and our trend-setting experimental technique we are Europe's leading test and qualification enterprise for the aeronautical industry, in particular in terms of speed, flexibility, adherence to delivery dates and quality.
