our story

Rooted in years of technological research

Wingtra is based in the heart of Zurich, Switzerland. In a 1,000 m2 (10,800 ft2) office, the company houses 100+ employees, out of which more than 30 focus on R&D. Wingtra’s engineers are graduates from the world’s 3rd best university for engineering and technology, ETH Zurich (Top Universities, 2019) and are among the leading research engineers in VTOL technology. Drones are assembled in-house in Zurich by our production team, and technical specialists support our customers globally.

The WingtraOne drone is rooted in years of robotics research at the Autonomous Systems Lab—one of the world’s best drone laboratories. Several of Wingtra’s employees have based their doctoral and master projects on VTOL technology and now pursue research and development at Wingtra.


The drone hub

Since the 20th century, Switzerland has been known as one of the world’s most advanced economies. It also ranks first in the Global Innovation Index (2019). Nowadays, Switzerland, and especially its largest city Zurich, houses the biggest players in the tech and drone industries. Not only Wingtra, but also Google, Facebook Oculus, Leica Geosystems, Pix4D, Auterion, PX4, Sensefly and Flyability are all headquartered inside the Swiss borders. This is why Switzerland is often referred to as “The Hub of Drones” or “The Silicon Valley of Robotics.”
