Our project ‘Practical testing for young refugees’ in cooperation with Arbeit und Bildung e.V. and IPLE is in its fourth year. 72 young people from six schools were each at the Fliegerwerkstatt for a week during their orientation phase.
Under the title ‘We are the tenants – Vacancy at the former Tempelhof Airport? No way!’ the Berliner Zeitung also reported on the Fliegerwerkstatt on 8/6/2022.
For the play ‘Das Wirtshaus im Spessart’ we built the stage design! At Whitsun, the play can be seen at the Brandenburg Theater Festival in the St. Paulikloster. Continue reading “Stage set for ‘Das Wirtshaus im Spessart”
We have now also built a raised bed on the sunny Tempelhofer Feld and can start growing vegetables.
The restoration of the cockpit mockup of a Dornier 728 jet is completed. A great project in cooperation with the Museum of Technology and Günter Hujer comes to an end.
At the beginning of the year we continued with the construction of the canoe. The battens are sanded, now the fiberglass mat and the epoxy resin could be applied. Continue reading “The canoe gets waterproof”
A few months ago, we received a donation in kind from the airline IBERIA, which inspired a new product idea: key boards with the buckles of discarded seat belts.
Next door in Hangar 7, the Condor, which has been restored over a period of two decades, is currently being fully reassembled. The restoration is a joint project of the German Museum of Technology, Airbus, the Deutsche Lufthansa Berlin-Stiftung and Rolls-Royce.
The historic Focke-Wulf Fw 200 “Condor” aircraft is the only surviving example of this type.
Our team has changed this year after Dirk Dreissen left the Fliegerwerkstatt after more than four years.
Social pedagogue Patrick Peinhopf has been on board since February. He completed a manual apprenticeship as a production mechanic before starting his studies. We were able to win over the set designer Donald Becker as a workshop teacher, who has also developed and implemented exhibition designs for various museums as well as youth film and theatre projects, among other things.
Since December, Rosa Kantereit has joined us as a workshop teacher who, as a technical model maker, brings with her manual and CAD know-how.
Jonas Wittrock is still available to us as a working student.
A mixed team with very different expertise and a lot of ideas for the coming years!
A long time of waiting for the wood delivery and a necessary TÜV certification delayed the completion: but now the first four benches could be put up.
Our nice neighbours from WISAG brought the benches to Tempelhofer Feld for us with forklift trucks and lorries.
