TechSAT has received the AVIC Partnership Award 2016. The ceremony was held during the Zhuhai Airshow where Dieter Konnerth, CEO of TechSAT, gave a speech. Here is the transcript of his speech:
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. This is my first time to attend the Zhuhai Airshow and I’m very happy to meet so many old friends here. I am very honoured and pleased to receive this award and I want to thank AVIC for recognizing our work in this way. I also want to thank the QingAn, XAC and the TechSAT engineers for their work. My special thanks goes to the management of QingAn who have trusted us and have ventured to select a less conventional partner for the development of the High Lift System – and thus have given us the chance to stand here today as a successful team. We have tried and are continuously trying to contribute to the Chinese aerospace industry in a more open way, driven by personal commitment, engineering expertise and enthusiasm for everything what is flying. It was not always easy and we have learned a lot during the last several years. This award is a great acknowledgment of our effort and our philosophy. For myself, I have spent most of my last six years in China and it became my second home. The work here is very interesting and challenging for me and I will continue to try my best together with our teams to support the Chinese aerospace industry.
We are all very proud of our accomplishments in China and excited of what awaits us in the future.
