Research airport

Braunschweig Research Airport provides the ideal environment for Leichtwerk AG‘s scientific and technical work.

The institutes and facilities at the Braunschweig site of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) offer the necessary amenities and expertise for aeronautical technical projects.

The Technische Universität Braunschweig site of the German Aerospace Center combines both academic research and student training.

An additional interface between research and the industry will soon be provided by the Automotive Research Centre of Niedersachsen.

Aeronautical technical projects must always be viewed with the valid statutory regulations and approval conditions in mind. It can therefore be seen as a great benefit that the Federal Office of Civil Aeronautics, as the national aeronautical authorities, and the German Aero Club are also located at Braunschweig Airport. and

Today, as a result of the long-term cooperation with all these establishments, Leichtwerk AG is a member of an extremely efficient scientific network that is traditionally based on close personal contacts.
