Big Drone in Lakeland
The North American division of the Norwegian company Griff Aviation opened its doors at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport this year. They invited LkldTV for a conversation about why they chose our town and a flight demonstration of one of their Heavy Lift Unmanned Ariel Systems. The big drone known as Griff 135 was said to be able to lift heavy loads from 60 up to nearly 170 pounds. Drones, designed for the industrial, agricultural and military marketplace, are assembled here in Lakeland for distribution throughout North America.
