Finnish Lapland is the largest remaining wilderness in Europe. Being sparesly inhabited makes the area a truly attractive choise for any company that wishes to test its equipment beyond the reach of too many keen eyes.

Mild summers offer you days with 20 hours of continuous sunlight. Harsh winters put your products to test unmatched with any other spot in continental Europe.

With the congested air space of Central and Western Europe already constraining UAV operations, this new open environment will provide an important stimulus to development of unmanned air system by the European aerospace and defence industries.
