RaM Technicians receive Pilot License for Robotic Falcons

On Monday, October 9, Marcel Schwirtz and Sander Smits finalized the flapping-wing bird training with Jan-Willem van den Eijkel from the Dronebird Company.

After three days of training at Space53 at the Technology Base in Enschede, they can safely fly and return flapping-wing robots. The training was part of the Portwings Project.

At the Robotics and Mechatronics group of the University of Twente, we are rapidly expanding facilities and skills for UAV flight tests and applications to support our broad field of research in robotics.
