France was the first country to produce a jet aircraft making inexpensive pilot-training possible, the FOUGA CM 170. Thanks to its technical qualities the MAGISTER was the first training machine in which a pilot could go through a complete training course, from the beginning right through to mastery of the combat aircraft covering: basic training, advanced training aerobatics, blind flying, night flying, gunnery, bombing etc. The maiden flight of the prototype took place on July 23rd 1952. In addition to the French Air Force Fleet Air Arm, fifteen, or so other countries have used the Magister.
At Heller, we are constantly working to produce our products as sustainable as possible. In recent years, we have therefore taken many measures to increase resource efficiency as much as possible.
Since 2023, we have been producing all Heller model kits with recycled plastic. This gives existing plastic a new life in a great kit while maintaining the same quality.
Instead of packing our sprues in plastic bags, we use tissue paper to transport all components in a clean, protected and environmentally friendly way. Thanks to our seal closure, we do not need shrink film. This also significantly increases the recyclability of our packaging.
We are proud of our large archive of injection moulds. That is why we rework, repair and improve existing moulds instead of throwing them away. Great models are preserved and at the same time a lot of energy and material is saved. That's why we proudly display the year of manufacture of our moulds and the year of the last general overhaul clearly on every product box.
