My first contact with the activities at Kjeller airport goes back to August 1963 when I needed workshop practice before studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway. I got a half year employment in the Depot Workshops at the Air Materiel Command before continuing with other skills at companies in Oslo.
After having finished my studies, I returned to the Air Materiel Command to serve my military service at the Technical Branch, Jet engine Department. Thereafter I started working at the Drawing office at the Depot, later Workshop Planning and depot Staff management.
In 1984 I got an Employment with The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate, where I checked benefits and costs for introduction of new Power systems. After two years I became head of the office for Energy resources and new Power systems.
In 1988 I returned to the Air Depot at Kjeller, now as Production Manager for all workshops dealing with Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul of Gas Turbine Engines, Aircraft and Helicopters and Avionic and Ground based systems.
In 2004 all the depot workshops in the Norwegian Armed forces were assembled in a new joint division to take out synergies. My workshops were lifted as independent units, and I was appointed Head of the Air Depot. The year after some changes took place, and I became Quality Manager for the Air Depot until I retired June 1. 2011.
In all I have had 38,5 interesting years in a challenging Organization at Kjeller spread over 42,5 years.
As Retired, I as editor documented the 100 years history of the Armed forces activity at the Kjeller airfield since the first flight Saturday September 21. 1912.

Det har kommet mange bøker om historien til Kjeller flyplass. Det var først og fremst en militær flyplass der Hærens flyvåpen og Hærens flyvemaskinfabrikk holdt til. Kjeller var også plassen der landfly fra inn- og utlandet ved ankomst til Norge måtte lande. Det fantes tollklarering på stedet, og flyvere fikk hjelp med det daglige vedlikeholdet. Mange norske fly landet her for å få sitt luftdyktighetsbevis fornyet eller få fly registrert. Hærens flyvemaskinfabrikk stilte lokaler og personale til rådighet for privatflyvere. Det var et flott samarbeid der.

Foruten norske flyvere landet det regelmessig utenlandske flyvere som kom på Norgesbesøk. I boken førsøkes det å gi en så komplett som mulig oversikt over de sivil registrerte flyene som har vært på Kjeller. Dessverre er det ikke alltid mulig å finne et bilde til flyet på flyplassen, men der hvor det fantes vises det et bilde av flyet. Mellom 1936 og 1938 kom Deutsche Lufthansa og Det Danske Luftfartselskab regelmessig med landfly til Kjeller på vei til og fra London.

Boken tar for seg tiden fram til 1. juni 1939, altså inntil Oslo Lufthavn Fornebu ble åpnet. Den er først og fremst en reise gjennom Kjellers rike flyhistorie. Det er viktig at den historien blir tatt vare på for de neste generasjonene.

English: The book is about civil aircraft that visited Kjeller air field, just north of Oslo, between 1919 and 1939. All foreign aircraft had to land here for custom duties. All new landplanes to be registered in Norway, had to come for inspection to Kjeller. Thus many types of aircraft were frequent visitors. The author has tried to find the first arrival date of each aircraft, as many, of course, arrived several times. Each first arrival is accompanied with a small story and a photograph (if available).
The text is in Norwegian only.

André Japy fløy direkte fra Paris til Kjeller i denne Caudron C.600 Aiglon. Etter 1,5 timer returnerte han samme vei.
