Optimizing time-to-FLY and enhancing airport SECurity

FLYSEC is an ambitious 36 month Research and Innovation project, gathering excellence and expertise from Industry, SMEs, Research and Academia including stakeholders and end users such as major airport operator and international airports. 

Preparing proof-of-concept

At 27th July and 2nd August FLYSEC partners met at Schönhagen airport (ICAO code: EDAZ) in close proximity to Berlin.

Schönhagen airport is one of the most important general aviation airports in Germany and the largest in the new federal states. The airport is optimally developed for business aviation. In the category of aircraft up to 12 tonnes in maximum take-off weight (MTOW) Schönhagen is also becoming the most important alternative airport for the new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport (BER). Schönhagen is not just an airport, but also a resource for attracting businesses, research, conferences, events, and innovative technologies.

FLYSEC partners and the airport management discussed opportunities to implement technical solutions developed by the project for testing and technical validation. It is intended to use parts of the airport administration building, conference centre and gastronomical facilities to perform testing from Autumn onwards.
