This week, you could already experience the future of mobility in the air with us. RWTH Aachen University and its partners are launching a unique nationwide competence and test center for networked and automated vertical mobility and invited guests to a symbolic lift-off at our Aldenhoven Testing Center site. Ina Brandes, Minister of Transport of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, and Professor Andreas Pinkwart, Minister of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, together with Professor Ulrich Rüdiger, Rector of RWTH, launched the first unmanned flight for this purpose.

Happy Easter

I wonder if the Easter bunny has hidden its easter eggs at our site? We have enough space for Easter nests on our 12 test tracks...

Safely through road traffic

How do I behave properly in road traffic? To teach children how to behave safely on bicycles, the Verkehrswacht / Jugendverkehrsschule regularly conducts bicycle training sessions with elementary school students. To reinforce this, the K&L publishing house, together with Verkehrswacht Jülich e.V., has published a new child-friendly coloring and workbook with digital content and learning success checks. We think: This is a good thing!
