Created in 2002 by Mr. Arslan, AIRPLANE PAINTER is the
first company to have developed the concept of
ephemeral and modular painting booths.
Head of Production in a company specialized in aircrafts painting, Ersun ARSLAN then created his own company, AIRPLANE PAINTER, in 2002. He developed an innovative concept of portable paint booths in order to paint aircrafts in situ, in maintenance hangars. Success came fast since the idea was to perform paintings without moving the aircrafts and without adding a long turn around time to the maintenance phases. The concept was taken to multiple countries and ensured a fast growth of the business. With the help of his family, he improved the concept and developed the concept of booth “with oblique flow” that was the pioneer of the installations in hangar 4 of Toulouse Francazal Airport where the company settled in 2012. With two paint booths, the projects were flowing and quickly reached a rhythm of one aircraft painted every five days, from Airbus A321 to Beechcraft with a big emphasis on ATR. Mr. Ersun Arslan, very passionate, is now the president of multiple businesses but he is never far from the paint shops; he himself handles the leadership of complex paint projects on a regular basis.
Charly started very young amongst the family business to learn the job of a painter; quickly mastering all the different phases. Curious and eager to learn, early on he became responsible for the business development and assisted his father in the company’s management.
Many business trips developed in Charly a strong international culture.
He contributed to the development of portable paint booths, pioneer of the actual paint shops in Francazal airport.
He took off with the creation of AIRPLANE DELIVERY, a major player recognized in the MRO world.
A tireless businessman, he co-founded AIRPLANE TECHNICS and is also the leader of several companies in various sectors.
Mr. Gaudon has a doctorate in mechanical Engineering from Ensica and Université Paul Sabatier. He started as a manager of IPSO and contributed to the conception of the “Beluga” (A300-600ST).
Later on, he joined RECIF, a company creating semi-conducting robots as director of the design office and then as General Director. He led the development of a new range of robots from the conception to the industrialization and he handled the commercialization all over the world to prestigious customers such as Intel.
He moved to SIGFOX (an operator of telecommunication) as he was looking for an innovative and disruptive environment. He led projects and took over the industrial management of the company.
Mr. Gaudon came back to aviation when he jointed AIRPLANE PAINTER and AIRPLANE DELIVERY as the managing director. Animated by a will to innovate, he co-founded with Mr Arlsan AIRPLANE TECHNICS, an innovative company based on technological development of systems for paint and maintenance activities.
