Emca Electronic AG and KUERZI Aviation AG join forces!
We are excited to announce that Emca Electronic AG and KUERZI Aviation AG have decided to shape the future together as KUERZI Aviation AG.

Ralf Kürzi, a highly regarded expert in aviation certification, will take the position of head of office of airworthiness while the future CEO will be Beat Otzenberger, who has a proven track record building up and leading successful teams in the aviation industry.
We cover the entire avionics value chain from design, through permit to fly, production and maintenance. All disciplines help in improving our products in terms of design, quality and reliability while keeping development time to a minimum.
