American drone company establishes itself at HCA Airport

Thunderstrike Aviation, an American drone manufacturer specialising in green technology for the drone industry, is establishing a test, development and demonstration centre at HCA Airport to further penetrate the Danish market.

HCA Airport can add a significant new business to the airport's already growing drone ecosystem.

Thus, it is now official that the ambitious American company Thunderstrike Aviation will establish a permanent presence at HCA Airport - among other things to utilise the unique test facilities and airspace that HCA Airport offers in collaboration with UAS Denmark Testcenter.

Once all permits are in place, Thunderstrike Aviation will establish its own test, development and demonstration centre at the airport for its drones.

"We see Thunderstrike Aviation as an important addition to our business ecosystem. It's not every day that a foreign company establishes itself at the airport, so we also see it as an endorsement of our facilities," says Hans Okholm Vejrup, CEO of HCA Airport.

Huge potential

Thunderstrike's range of drone solutions includes state-of-the-art and multi-fuel drone technologies, and it is Thunderstrike's ambition to redefine the market in terms of what is possible with drone technology while being safe and good for the environment.

"HCA Airport is a world-class location for the testing and development of drone and anti-drone technologies. Thunderstrike Aviation's decision to establish their European headquarters at the airport is further proof of the enormous potential of the drone ecosystem. With innovative companies, world-leading research from SDU and an expressed ambition from the Danish government to make the airport a NATO Centre of Excellence for drones, the future is bright for the drone cluster at HCA Airport," says Peter Rahbæk Juel, Mayor of Odense Municipality.

"Thunderstrike has a profile that fits perfectly with the airport's other activities. I also see the company's green profile as a big plus. Therefore, I am very much looking forward to welcoming the company to H.C. Andersen Airport and not least to Nordfyns Municipality," adds Mette Landtved-Holm, Mayor of Nordfyns Municipality.
