AS Munich recently organized a visit to the Airbus Production Line in Hamburg, Finkenwerder. With the support of Katharina Krieger, one of our alumni working at Airbus, the visit was a fantastic opportunity for EUROAVIA members from different Local Groups to come together, connect, and explore the fascinating world of aerospace.
This visit brought together 24 participants from six different Local Groups: Munich, Dresden, Bremen, Braunschweig, Oostende, and Aachen. To make it even more special, members from five Local Boards joined the group. Rarely do six Local Groups converge outside of International Events, and we felt the power of collaboration and the strength of our EUROAVIA network.
The visit to the Airbus Production Line in Hamburg gave us very interesting insights to the production of modern passenger aircraft. The aerospace giant’s facility in Finkenwerder is a remarkable place, where innovation, precision, and dedication come together. It was a privilege to step into the heart of aircraft manufacturing. As an extra treat, we were also lucky to see a Beluga XL approaching and landing at the Finkenwerder facilities!
Our members had the opportunity to witness the intricate processes involved in aircraft assembly, from the crafting of components to the assembly of complete aircraft. As our participants are eager to explore their future career paths, this visit provided them with valuable insights into the industry.
But the visit wasn’t just about machinery and technology, it was also about people. We had the chance to interact with Katharina Krieger, who shared her valuable experiences and insights as an Airbus employee and EUROAVIA alumna. These personal interactions are what make EUROAVIA unique; we are not just an organization, but a community of passionate aerospace enthusiasts.
Beyond the production line, the visit was a perfect platform for building lasting connections. Members from different Local Groups had the opportunity to exchange ideas, discuss potential collaborations, and share their EUROAVIA stories. This visit reaffirmed that EUROAVIA is not just an association; it’s a family that transcends borders.
We extend our gratitude to Katharina Krieger, whose support and enthusiasm made this visit possible. Her dedication to supporting the next generation of aerospace professionals is very appreciated.
We would also like to thank the participants who made the journey to Hamburg. Your curiosity and passion for aerospace are what drive our community forward.
This visit was just one of many activities in AS Munich’s calendar. This semester will be full of exciting events and we’re looking forward to sharing them with the EUROAVIA community.
