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 70+ 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 all year round in English, German and Mandarin.
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 (2018). 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.”
The team is located in Zurich–a vibrant city also known as the Silicon Valley of robotics. Its ever-growing multi-national team is an eclectic blend of young entrepreneurs; brilliant software developers and engineers; service-oriented sales managers, and dedicated technical support experts, who all share a common vision of what the future of aerial mapping should look like.
Wingtra aims to have a large-scale positive impact on the human condition. We do this through technology and robots. We help people to provide information and improve their decisions using aerial robots.
