Do you need
What we have

Cutting-edge innovations, strong performance, efficient deployment, modular features, expanded operational possibilities, efficient and sustainable solutions for operations and maintenance of Unmanned Rotorcraft Systems (URS, or Rotorcraft RPAS), all at high safety standards? Or you have airworthiness issues or need to comply with (international) regulatory developments or certification standards?

Two decades experience in (rotorcraft) RPAS research, combined with nearly a century’s experience in the field of manned rotorcraft. We offer independent R&D and consultancy to each URS stakeholder.

We can support you with our ample experience in the Airworthiness, Qualification and Certification of both manned and unmanned aircraft. Also, you can contact us for know-how and involvement in RPAS Regulations, including activity in EUROCAE WG-73 and WG-93.
