EVW Maintenance has extensive expertise in the field of restoration of historic aircraft and their components. Currently we have several restoration projects in progress. In one project simultaneously two planes restored. These are the Vultee Valiant BT13.


Through the menu, there you can find more information about current projects, but also on a number of projects already completed. The pages of the current projects will be regularly updated with new text and pictures so that the progress of these projects can be followed here.


EVWM is also specialized in making separate parts or parts that are no longer available. The parts we obviously do not have in stock and are therefore only available to order, please contact us for more information.


In short, EVWM is always busy historic aviation to make a little richer with flying airplanes.





Fokker C10


By ATN, the wings partially reconstructed from a Fokker C-10. These wings are built in the VTOC and we will continue to reduce them incl. The bommenrek. This page will follow this resauratieproject are, of course, with regular new pictures. This project is in collaboration with the Friends of the Military Aviation Museum.




The Fokker C-10 was a double reconnaissance aircraft and light bomber with a Rolls-Royce Kestrel V engine of 608 hp. It was initially designed for the Military Aviation of the Royal Dutch East Indies Army. The first prototype flew on October 9, 1934 and the Colonies ordered 13 copies. However, the Aviation Department in the Netherlands was also interest the urgent replenishment for exploration purposes used C-5'n 1925 were outdated and needs. In 1934 was therefore placed an initial order by the Aviation Department for four C-10'n, the numbers 700 t / m 703 later followed by an order for 16 pieces, the numbers 704 t / m 719. The first series aircraft was delivered in 1935, the second series of a year later. The cost of a C-10 in 1935 was approximately 30,000 fl,-.


Besides the Netherlands, Spain and Finland also had an interest in the C X. The Spanish Republic secretly bought a copy with a 850 hp. Hispano Suisa engine and equipped with a 20 mm. cannon. The aim was to build the C-X license. Ordered Finland in 1937, four copies of the C-X fitted with a Bristol Pegasus radial engine. In the years 1938 - 1942 built the Finns 35C-X's license under which during the war with the Russians (1939-1940 and 1941-1944) were successfully deployed as a scout and (diving) bomber. The last Finnish C-X crashed in 1958.


The C-10 had one machine gun shooting through the propeller plane and one behind machine gun. Among the left and right lower wing bominrichtingen were mounted, causing the aircraft to eight bombs of 50 kg., Sixteen of 25 kg. or four bombs of 100 kilograms. could carry.


Unfortunately, the C-10, at the time of entry into service, in 1936, is no longer suitable for the intended purpose. In our neighboring countries were already fast two-engined airplanes used for strategic reconnaissance. In our country we were, however, so far not yet. However, such aircraft were ordered in 1940 in Germany, but they are discontinued. Source:


When the Aviation Department once it was established, it was also necessary that within the Aeronautics Division planes came. Therefore traveled in early May 1913 off. Walaardt Sacre, lt. Of Heyst and Ir. John Rozendaal to France, at that time the leading country in plane area.


After comparing different devices, the War Department was advised to proceed to purchase the Farman HF-20, because they had left the best impression of the different views aircraft models. When this advice was followed, were lts. Versteegh van Heyst and Coblijn sent to France to keep an eye on. Also covered. Walaardt Sacré joined the company. Beginning in September 1913, the three bought Farmans at Soesterberg where they got the registration LA-2 and LA-4.


All three were flown by early October of Heyst, and the LA-2 was assigned to van Heyst, the LA-3 to Versteegh and the LA-4 to Coblijn. Early in 1914 the government ordered the slightly larger version of the Farman HF-20, HF-22. Of this type there were four before the First World War broke out in the Netherlands. These received the registration LA-6 to LA-8 and M-1. The latter was used to train Navy Flyers at Soesterberg. On May 28, 1915 it was transferred to the LVA and received the registration LA-9.


Because Wijnmalen who had bought at Trompenburg employ the licensing rights of Farman was, it was a small step for the government to place an order with Trompenburg. The were 11 HF-22 aircraft for the LVA and 3 HR-22 aircraft for the MLD. The end of 1918 came to an end at the Farman era, when the remaining eleven HF-22 aircraft were sold to Carley his Edese flight school.


The Farman was a device developed in France, created by the brothers Henri and Maurice Farman. The plane flew up to 105 km per hour and had a flight range of 300 km. There was room for two people and it was equipped with a 6.5 mm machine gun. Just before the outbreak of World War reinforced a second shipment Farmans the fleet. On August 3, 1914 arrived the last of the four aircraft ordered in the Netherlands. One was for the Navy. The planes were deployed at the border control.




Cessna 172 (1956) The oldest 172 in Europa
In October 2013 we found a Cessna 172 from the year 1956 with serial number 28308 in the USA. On behalf of a client, we have the plane there inspected to spot and then crated and shipped to Netherlands. In return, our team from the USA, we have continued to examine the history of the aircraft. This was not such a big job because throughout history there is to make the first test flight by Cessna. This showed that this is probably one of the oldest surviving Cessna 172, at least the oldest in Europe.


When the container with the Cessna 172 arrives in Hoogeveen with us in the company. The container is packed directly from the aircraft undamaged comes out. We then again inspected all the parts and made a plan to get the plane airworthy again. Meanwhile, there is also a start was made to register the aircraft under its old registration. This process was completed on June 30, 2014 by the FAA.





FW44J Stieglitz


The very famous aircraft designer Kurt Tank was in 1932, technical director of Focke Wulf in Bremen. The first plane, which he constructed in this capacity was the Stieglitz. The reason for the construction of this airplane was the question from the angle of the art kites. Among other Emil Kropf, Ernst Udet, and especially Gerd Achgelis, who became a remarkable tour with this machine by the U.S. would make.


The Stieglitz is widely used by the German Verkehsrsfliegerschulen and later by the Nazi Luftwaffe. Partly because of the demand for aircraft was so high that the machine was built by various licensees. The machine is at ATN, was built in 1940 by: Ceskomoravaska Kolben-Danek (CKD) in Prague and its SZ-21 military life worn in Finland. At present, the machine is registered in the German register under the symbol: D-ELFW.


Besides the Luftwaffe, the machine is used in large numbers by: Bolivia, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Finland, Romania, Slovakia, Turkey, and Argentina, Brazil, Sweden and the machines under license of fabricated. Of the remaining Stieglitzen There are only a few airworthy, most are in museums.


The restoration


Color scheme FW44JHet plane crated by ATN in the US, after which it is transported to Hoogeveen. The Stieglitz is equipped with the BMW designed Siemens Sh 14 a radial engine that delivers 150 hp. During the restoration the fuselage and wings completely stripped, inspected, re-coated and painted. The aircraft is painted in color scheme of the Berlin Olympiad in 1939.


The Stieglitz on 29-12-2003 has made the first flight after restoration and this flight was a success. The plane flew perfectly and it was wonderful to see it fly. The pictures of the restoration and of course the first flight can be found in the photo gallery.


14 and August 15, 2004 the Stieglitz made his first cross-country flight, namely the International Old Timer Fly-inn at Schaffen-Diest. Here, the aircraft has won the "Best Vintage" (best old-timer)! Here we are obviously very happy.



Koolhoven FK51


The FK 51 Koolhoven was most commercially successful design. It was developed at the plant's own responsibility. But she was hoping for an order from the former Air Force LVA. Which at that time was looking for a suitable trainer.Het prototype was built nearly thirteen weeks and first flew on May 25, 1935. About a month later he was tested by the LVA together with the British Avro 621 "Tutor". FK 51 turned out well to get through the test. And next orders of the LVA, but also of the MLD (Navy), LA-KNIL and the Spanish government. This success Koolhoven needs to expand his factory. FK 51 was used as a trainer and scout. There were no less than 160 units built.


The project


On Thursday, April 25, 2002 was at the Military Aviation Museum signed a contract with "Friends of the Military Aviation Museum, to proceed with the construction of a replica of the FK 51. This led to a contract to ATN Aircraft Division to build the body of the FF 51. Meanwhile, the hull is welded and approved by "SVVHMLM" it followed the order to also make the complete landing gear. Meanwhile the complete landing gear was designed and happened the last welding on the hull. This is a project successfully completed at ATN again. Friday, October 8 retrieved the body and will be further completed by the "S.V.V.H.M.L.M" after which it will be in the museum as a complete FK51.



Tiger Mothe DH82A


The Tiger Moth is a restoration commissioned by the Military Aviation Museum (MLM) Soesterberg. It is the intention to restore the complete aircraft and bring it back into air-quality state.
