The Small Aircraft Technology research facility in Aachen and Merzbrück is dedicated to research on the topics of electric flight with a focus on small aircraft and future urban aviation.
With regard to the planned structural change and the vision of the Rhenish lignite mining area as a "mobility region of the future", the focus is on the subject areas of General Aviation (GA) and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) as the basis for a new form of mobility. This will be done with a strong emphasis on the overall design, production, sustainable propulsion systems, avionics and increasing automation up to the autonomy of new vehicles and systems.
