Wingtra was founded in 2016 as a spin-off of Prof. Dr. Roland Siegwart’s Autonomous Systems Lab, at ETH Zurich in Switzerland. The project is rooted in years of ambitious robotic research in vertical take-off & landing technology of tail-sitting UAVs where its control algorithms enable autonomous transition from hovering to plane-like flying.

Now, wingtra has become the world’s leading VTOL drone producer, headquartered in Switzerland. Since its market entry in early 2017, Wingtra has partnered with more than 30 of the biggest surveying equipment dealers across the globe such as RDO Equipment in US
