Support the rebirth of the Lufthansa Super Star

Let the Lufthansa Super Star become an affair of your heart like it is for everyone involved in this fascinating, once in a lifetime project. Be part of such a unique and thrilling adventure in aviation history, which is made possible solely by financial support and donations in kind from individuals and corporations alike.

We not only work on a piece of U.S. aviation history. We’ve written Trans-Atlantic aviation history ourselves. Never before has a nearly sixty years old propliner been restored up to the highest possible technical standards of a 21st century commercial airliner. 

Everyone involved in our German-American team is filled with pride and joy looking at what has already been accomplished. These remarkable achievements have exclusively been made possible by the outstanding generosity and support of our highly valued sponsors. 

Now we need your continued support for the final mile on this road to success!
