Until May 1977, the company rented the facilities on Herning Airfield, where the workshop was placed.

Expansion of the company.

During the first years the company growed rapidly and the workshop / hangar facilities was soon to small, and we faced, that if we wanted to grow and still be adapted the GA market, we needed to build our own facilities.
In the beginning of 1976 we started the construction of a new building on 600 square m.
This facilities was ready for use in the beginning of 1977.

The first years after the company was started the work was primarily normal repair and service on smaller aircrafts, but in 1994 we expanded the activities again by founding the company F.O.Fly- & Motorservice ApS., the owners of this company is Finn Schou and Niels Lassen.

Niels Lassen was also educated as an aircraft mechanic in the Danish Air force where he has served in 6 years, after that period he continued, as a technician, in a civilian aircraft piston-engine workshop, the next 3 years.
Niels Lassen is today the manager and the leading technician in the aircraft engine-, component- and propeller workshop by F.O.Fly- & Motorservice, witch is a sub division of of F.O.Flyservice.

The workshop facilities, in Herning Airfield, have expanded with a engine and propeller workshop, all the facilities are today about 1.000 m2. heated area and further about 1.000 m2, unheated hangar facilities for aircraft parking, etc.
