X2E Flight Test Center: Contract signed at the Strausberg Airport
X2E Aerospace Technologies GmbH is planning to establish its own flight test center in the greater Berlin area. Last week, a strategic agreement was signed for this purpose at Strausberg airfield near the capital. The new company location will deal with the development and testing of innovative aviation technologies and create up to 30 high-tech jobs for this purpose.
Space for own aviation research
The X2E Flight Test Center is to be built in Strausberg by 2024. Our construction project for the site primarily includes a flight hangar from which we can launch test flights with our own test aircraft, the Partenavia P.68. Next to this will be an office building with development offices, meeting and test rooms. In the future, X2E Aerospace Technologies will carry out innovative aviation projects in these. .
The focus is on the development and testing of aerospace data loggers, for which we can draw on the many years of experience of the entire X2E Group. In addition, X2E Aerospace Technologies in Strausberg will focus on climate-neutral and hybrid-electric propulsion concepts. In total, around 30 new and promising jobs are being created at the X2E flight test center, including in the fields of aerospace engineering, electrical engineering and business administration.
Strategy agreement signed at Strausberg airfield
With the Strausberg airfield, we have found a location that is not only in the capital region and the headquarters of X2E Aerospace Technologies in Wildau, but also meets our technological requirements. At the airfield, we can combine the necessary infrastructure for test flights and an office building in one place. Just last week, the airfield took another attractive step for us with the start of operations of the instrument approach system.
As part of the celebrations for the opening of the instrument approach system, Irina Kühnel, Managing Director from the airfield, and Dr. Karlheinz Weiss, Managing Director from X2E Aerospace Technologies, signed a joint strategy agreement. – “We are pleased about the valuable cooperation and the promising start for an X2E flight test center at Strausberg airfield,” said Dr. Karlheinz Weiss.
