The Cessna Caravan 208 with the registration D-FUNK was brought into service on 27 April 2007. The Cessna Grand Caravan 208B EX with the registration D-FUNC was brought into service on 23rd of September 2019. The base of both aircraft is the airfield, "Hunriger Wolf" at Itzehoe/Germany.
The Cessna Caravan is versatile and can be used for passenger, freight and parachute jumpers. In the passenger facilities a maximum of 9 passengers can be comfortably carried. Used as a cargo airplane it can carry up to 1.0 tons of cargo. In addition, the "208" is authorized to carry skydivers to altitude.
Both aircraft are equipped with a powerful turbine-propeller drive from Pratt & Whitney, Canada. With this power both aircraft provide an excellent performance, ideal for operation from very short runways or in mountainous terrain. Equally popular with VIPs with executive interior as well as urgent freight shipments and the ever increasing number of parachutists.
With our two Cessna Caravan aircraft, we have the permission to transport passengers, mail and/or cargo in commercial air transport. The permit covers flights for visual flight rules (VFR) and instrument flight rules (IFR) within the whole region of Europe (ICAO region EUR) and as well for specialised operations (flights for parachute jumpers and aerial photography).

IAS Itzehoer Air Service GmbH is now an "Approved Training Organisation", which has been approved by Luftfahrt-Bundesamt (LBA) and has its own ATO certificate no. DE.ATO.198!
Also we are very happy that the LBA approved some kinds of credits. Applicants for a class rating Cessna SET who require VFR only or for pilots with previous experience on another class rating SET may, at the discretion of the Head of Training, be credited towards the requirements for class rating issue. Therefore, training can now be carried out more proportionately to the applicant's specific needs.
