Dear ch-aviation subscribers & friends,

a fantastic year 2017 is coming to an end. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your outstanding support over the last 19 years. You’ve heard right, ch-aviation is turning twenty in 2018. Never would I have expected, when starting ch-aviation in 1998 in the “computer room” of my high school (the only computer with a internet connection in my life was there at the time) that ch-aviation would once reach 1.6 million people per year all over the world.

While it all started as a sporadically published newsletter that featured airline industry news, over the last 5 years ch-aviation has evolved to become one of the largest and most trusted airline industry data providers in the civil aviation world. We are now serving all main aircraft manufacturers, the largest airports, leasing companies, banks, technical suppliers and many other of the most reputable aviation companies in the world with our data. Even when you do profane things like checking in from a mobile app or looking for airline schedules, it is very likely that at least parts of the data needed for these operations are produced, curated and most importantly quality assured by us.

And it does not stop there, we have a fully lined up development pipeline for 2018 currently in production. Stay tuned for aircraft hours and cycles forecasts, a very sophisticated live alert center on industry events, advanced schedule and capacity reporting and a game changing charter aircraft search tool, just to name a few examples.

If you would like to join us on our journey to become the Bloomberg of aviation please let us know! We are currently hiring for a Director of Sales for the Airports and Travel Technology target markets, a Business Analyst and a QA Engineer, just drop us an E-Mail at and we fill you in to all the details.

Thank you very much

Thomas Jaeger

Chief Executive Officer
