In addition to the video, a media clip was created with the support of Stefan Wriege, Communications Manager of Rolls-Royce. We would like to find further partners like Rolls-Royce, who also want to pass on a part of their success to young people! Because this social return is an investment into a common peaceful and successful future. Watch media clip von Youtube
We are very happy that Anne Nielsen has become part of the Fliegerwerkstatt Team since November 1st! She brings with her a wealth of experience in Waldorf education, mediation and child and youth work.
In the new school year, the Fliegerwerkstatt cooperates with the educational institution Arbeit und Bildung e.V. and takes over the practical part of the programme ” Practical Experience for Refugee Youths”. This programme is supported by the Senate Department for Education, Youth and Family. Workshop weeks take place during an orientation phase. In temporary learning groups the contents are deepened and supplemented with language teaching, so that the participants can be placed within the school year into the work and training market.
Together with nine employees of the Daimler sales division in Berlin, we have built two large mobile benches and a raised bed for our inner courtyard. Soon we will be able to harvest our vegetables from our own raised bed for cooking.
For the Airlift Festival on May 12, 2019, the Fliegerwerkstatt was commissioned to build the interior of Hangar 5. ‘Hangar 5 – Understand Airlift’ dealt with the concrete afterlife of the Airlift and the Berlin reality of life during this time. Seven four-metre long transport crates, which served as counters for the exhibitors, as well as a living room furnished with typical decor of the time, were reconstructed by the young people. The production took place in the aircraft workshop.
The assembly was completed on site. With our new transport trolley the long side walls could be moved from yard 1 into hangar 5.
For the living room an original window was lent and wallpaper in the style of the 40’s was selected.
On the feast day itself our young people volunteered on the Tempelhofer Feld. Through these joint activities everyone gets to know each other better and better, regardless of which group and with what motivation they come to the airplane workshop in everyday life.
The common outfit is for all an important part of the feeling of togetherness.
The citizens’ initiative THF.VISION develops ideas and concepts for a sustainable use of the airport building. We produced the equipment for their location in the Torhaus on Columbiadamm.
Design students of the THF.VISION team designed stacking stools, tables, shelves and a mobile counter. Together with our young people, cutting plans were drawn up according to the designs and slabs cut, milled, sanded and glued. The material comes exclusively from recycled trade fair components.
After four days of working together, the goal was achieved: a joint project with many positive experiences for the young people and adults – and a finished facility!
Even though many young people of the Fliegerwerkstatt do not celebrate Christmas due to cultural reasons, our Christmas party was a nice end of the year with homemade biscuits and sightseeing flights over Berlin!
Together with our Captain Holger Litzenberg, the Young Pilots organised a flight hour in our simulator for everyone, followed by a small competition.
Baking and cooking were carried out in advance for the Christmas party.
