Demonstration for Sweden’s first intercity drone flight

August 4, 2022

The European CORUS-XUAM research project has announced a demonstration in Sweden due to take place in October 2022. A flight corridor between two cities will be activated at the time of the flight estimated to last 20-25 minutes. Take-off happens next to the military airforce base in Linköping and visitors will greet the Katla Aero drone at its arrival at Norrköping Airport. Dialogue is ongoing between the Swedish team and the municipalities, their experts in urban planning, digitalization & transport as well as three ATS units.
For almost two years, we have worked intensively to develop and prepare the demonstration and it is now time to carry out the first intercity drone flight between the Swedish cities Linköping and Norrköping.
We want it to be more than just a demonstration flight and the planned event will therefore last over two days – Thursday and Friday October 6-7.
In addition to see Katla’s drone fly from Linköping to Norrköping Airport, we will get together and learn about the findings from the project and how it paves the way forward for enabling Advanced Air Mobility. We will also hear experts from the industry discuss the introduction of Advanced Air Mobility and its sustainable future within mobility. And of course, network and have a great time!
Further down you will find the planned agenda for October 6-7, the schedule is approximate and may change with the set times, you will of course be kept updated if this is the case.
