Background about FUAVE, its test areas and the Helsinki East bootcamp:

The Finnish UAV Ecosystem (FUAVE) project is currently establishing UAS test areas across Finland. The first areas have already been established and in use in the Oulu region and they provide a one-stop-shop for research, business and applications.

This next interactive FUAVE online event and bootcamp session will focus on understanding the needs, use cases and potential of the newly opened Helsinki-East test area in Pyhtää for different types of drone and future aviation trials.

Welcome to vision the future of aviation with us!
