About Us


Message from the CEO

Jean Pierre KOHN, President and CEO of ASI AVIATION.



2014 was an exciting year of transformation for us in Reims with the beginning of a new chapter in the establishment of ASI-Aviation and taking over the Type Certificate of the Reims F406 and establishing the worldwide product support. We appreciate the support that we received from the owners, operators, maintenance organisations, vendors and colleagues in the industry and particularly thank the DGAC and EASA.

Together with Continental Motors Inc. a subsidiary of AVIC International Holding Company, Beijing we have always planned on putting the F406 aircraft back into production.

These plans are at an advanced stage of negotiation and further details will be released in a timely manner. Please be assured that the F406 with continue and will be updated and we will continue to develop the aircraft.

2015 promises to be even more exciting and to enable us to capitalise on the extensive modification work, the supply and installation of special mission equipment in both Reims F406 and Beech 200 and 350ER aircraft. We have funding in place that will enable us to purchase companies with similar ethics and quality assurance so that we can expand our in house capability, facilities and Certification to include Part 23 and Part 25 aircraft. The ability to manufacture, repair and overhaul components and increased stock of new and service exchange items shows our long term commitment to both Reims and the Beech range of Turboprop aircraft.

We will be able to offer both new and used surveillance aircraft ranging from the lightweight DA42 with the new Continental diesel engines to the F406 with either PT6 or Continental piston engines through to the Beech 200 and 350ER where we already have extensive experience in equipping, flight testing and delivering these aircraft.

We plan on offering a selection of used factory overhauled and warranted F406 aircraft either for special mission, commuter or freight use.

ASI Aviation supported by its parent company ASI Innovation and strengthened by its new partnerships will always remain focused on its core value that is the on-time delivery of a quality product and the highest standard of long term customer support.

Reims has always been recognized as a centre of excellence for the creation of fine Champagne, beautiful food and outstanding buildings at ASI Aviation and ASI Innovation we continue this passion.
