We want to spread the word about regional electric aviation. We see it as a groundbreaking way of transport that has the power to transform the Nordics into a borderless region. These are the initiatives that we are part of.

Electric Flight Tour 2021 (Elflygsturnén)
Sweden’s, and maybe the world’s longest electric aviation tour, was conducted in September 2021. It took place between Gothenburg at the west coast of Sweden är the Iceland Gotland at the east cost of Sweden. Six airports had longer stops and seminars with stakeholders and politicians. The airports with seminars were Halmstad, Ljungbyhed, Kristianstad, Växjö, Kalmar-Öland and Visby.
The electric air tour was initiated by the Nordic Network of Electric Aviation and The Aeroclub in Gothenburg. The Swedish regional airports (SRF) were also part of the tour and presented their work in the Green Airport project.
The electric flight tour was carried out to let people fly electric, but also to discuss how regional electric aviation could benefit the region in a couple of years. The Swedish Regional Airports did a film of the tour (except the last stop at Visby) and it can be viewed here (unfortunately it is in Swedish).
Nordic Initiative for Sustainable Aviation
CPH and NISA in the ALIGHT project work with a project plan for the Aircraft stand of the future, which means that the airport in the future will prepare to handle electric aircraft etc.
