The test site eFliegen BW is a research facility specialising in electric, energy-efficient and autonomous aviation.
The project has been established with the help of government funding by the Ministry of Economy, Employment and Housing (corresponding to today’s Ministry for Economy, Employment and Tourism) of Baden-Württemberg.
Since the end of the funding period (year end 2021) the association Area BW continues to operate the test site eFliegen BW at its own responsibility.
The test site is divided into two test fields, each of which is located at conventional airfields with controlled tower operations and a weather station. The test field for urban flight is located in Lahr (EDTL) and the test field for autonomous flight is located in Mengen (EDTM).
