The Award

On the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the first flight of the Ju 52/3m the local chapters H15 Hildesheim, S44 Mittweida, V28 Ludwigslust, W18 Dessau, W22 ZAB Dessau and Y07 Königs Wusterhausen of the DARC e.V. together with the Flieger-Funk-Runde e.V. (FFR) and the Swiss club station HB9VC issued this diploma.

In March 1932 a three-engined Ju 52 took off for its first flight. 90 years later this aircraft type has become a legend. Unfortunately, there are hardly any airworthy specimens left. But in Switzerland, Ju Air is working on the complete reconstruction of 3 aircraft. In spring 2023, vintage flights with the “Tante Ju” should take place again.
