Research & Development is a fundamental part of our company's DNA. Whether determing feasability and best practices for our clients from the entertainment and marketing industry, cooperating on government sponsored or private sector projects, our R&D team led by Rainer Mugrauer has been responsible for many award winning designs and concepts.


Festo Bionic Learning Network

One of our biggest success stories in this field is the ongoing cooperation with the German industrial control and automation company FESTO AG:

Operating under the name of our parent company "Effekt-Technik GmbH", Airstage CEO's Rainer and Günther Mugrauer are longstanding members of the Festo Bionics Learning Network - a group of universities, institutes and development companies who cooperate to research and develop new technology carriers using innovative bionics.
Since 2007, Airstage has been instrumental in the development, construction and operation of many ground breaking R&D bionic flight projects and won several awards for their work.
The expertise gained in such R&D projects enables us to incorporate such cutting edge technology into our flying models and control systems.
