Discover the possibilities

From commercialization of research projects to hub for international companies, Hans Christian Andersen Airport is a unique spot for UAS and UAS-related businesses.

Starting in 2011 with Boeing´s first test flights in Denmark the idea developed that the great facilities of the airport and the excellent infrastructure could form the basis for an UAS Test Center. Proudly we are now able to offer not only the needed airspace but also a newly renovated Business park as well as UAS Denmark, the Danish business network currently comprising about 130 members. Development plans for extending the airspace for UAS are progressing fast. Further we have just finished our new UAS Verification Facility, which can be used for advanced sensor testing.

In close cooperation with the Danish CAA we have developed an airspace at Hans Christian Andersen Airport in Odense for testing and operating UAS. Due to this close cooperation we are able to offer a short and effective approval process. Our aim is to make HCA Airport the number one spot for the national as well as the international UAS community.
