At the end of January 2010 RUAG Aerospace Services GmbH in Oberpfaffen-hofen got the official approval by the European Aviation Safety Agency EASA as production organization of the Do 228 NG (New Generation).  
With this approval all requirements are met to produce and deliver the first customer aircraft still this year. The new Do 228 NG differs from its predecessor in particular by an up-to-date glass cockpit and a clearly quieter and more efficient 5-blade propeller. 
In addition, it is remarkable for its excellent flight characteristics such as short-take-off capability, high payload and long range as well as its capability to take off from and land on unpaved runways with limited ground support services.  
During th Singapore Air Show the conclusion of an agreement was announced with the Norwegian Lufttransport AS for one Do 228 NG which will be used for passenger and cargo transport on unpaved airfields in Norway.
