About Eisenschmidt

R. Eisenschmidt GmbH: A company with a long aviation tradition ...

How it all began ...

On 1 September 1880, Rudolf Eisenschmidt started a publishing house in Berlin, which soon experienced rapid growth. Only a few years later in 1887, the company started a wholesale and retail business for maps. By the time the Second World War started, the R. Eisenschmidt GmbH company had become the largest German map dealer and was the main distributor for the official maps for the national mapping agencies of Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland.

In September 1909, the first chart for airships made its debut at the first International Airship Exhibition in Frankfurt. This chart was the forerunner of today's aeronautical charts. The creator of the chart, a lieutenant-colonel called Modebeck, already had a publishing house in mind, the firm Rudolf Eisenschmidt, that would market maps for the whole world.

A special chart just for aviation was an entirely new idea and went down in aviation history. Another first came in 1928. Eisenschmidt published the first aeronautical information publication for Germany, which included approach charts for aerodromes. After World War II, general aviation was banned in Germany. As a consequence, Eisenschmidt went back to publishing just general-purpose maps. Until the year 1961 when the Federal Administration of Air Navigation Services recognised the expertise in sales and aviation that had once existed in the firm and chose it to be the sales channel for its official publications for pilots.

Today ...

... the company is located at the largest general aviation airport in Germany, Egelsbach. At 135 years old, it is the oldest aviation publisher in the world.

Since July 2013, the company has been a subsidiary of the German air navigation service provider DFS and has undergone a comprehensive modernisation programme. The company's portfolio of aeronautical products includes official aeronautical publications and training material as well as technical accessories for the preparation, planning and conduct of flights. Almost 4 000 products are now carried in the range, which is being continuously updated and expanded.
