Finally, on Monday, the 18th of July 2022, AVILUS could move into their new branch offices within BrigkAir located right at the airport in Manching. Furthermore, the opening coincided with a very special visit: The General Inspector of the German Armed Forces, Eberhard Zorn, as well as Dr. Reinhard Brandl, a member of the German Bundestag, have attended short presentations about the current projects of BINZ and AVILUS. We cordially thank the participants for the fruitful discussions which shall facilitate the cooperation of Startups and the German Armed Forces.
Following and due to the kind invitation of the Drone Innovation Hub (Bundeswehr Technical Center for Aircraft and Aeronautical Equipment, WTD 61), the team of AVILUS had the chance to present the prototype of the current flight system under development to the General Inspector. Especially, General Zorn was interested in the operational aspects as well as the projected flight performance of the aircraft. The finalized structure of the airframe demonstrated many of the functional aspects that have been specifically tailored to the requirements of the Armed Forces.
