    1979

    The beginning

    My dear father Louis Swiggers founded Loma-Air in 1979. Before this he worked as an aircraft mechanic at "Sabena" for about ten years. In 1964 he married his great love Edith Caluwaert and a year later their first son "Jo" was born. In the same year he quit his job at "Sabena" to start his own "car sales and repair" shop in Heist-op-den-Berg and soon three more children were added to his responsibilities. Meanwhile his passion for aviation always had remained and in 1979 he and his good friend Marc Haegeman bought a Cessna 152 and learned to fly it, with his expertise as a former aircraft mechanic later that year Loma-Air was born. Several decades later Loma-Air is one of the major overhaul and parts shops in Europe. Unfortunately Louis passed away in March 2015. As Samuel Smiles once quoted: “The career of a great man remains an enduring monument of human energy. The man dies and disappears, but his thoughts and acts survive, and leave an indelible stamp upon his race”. Today we continue (t)his race with a team of 17 motivated men and woman, and all of Louis' four children working in the company, Loma-Air remains a family owned business. We continue his legacy to the best of our abilities.
