Large parts of both Norway and the world have shut down ordinary business, schools and kindergartens as a result of the Corona virus. In Kitemill, several of the company's employees are in regular operation at the test facility at Lista, in the very south of Norway.

In the middle of the corona era has the company continued to operated test flights on Lista.
-Of course we have to take all precautions and follow the authorities' measures and imposed restrictions. Everyone in Kitemill is healthy. Some work from home offices and we have used the opportunity to enable remote operation of several of the functions necessary for testing. As result of this we have sustained development and performed test flights as usual at our site at Lista, says Kitemill's CEO, Thomas Hårklau.
He tells of good results. The development progress satisfactorily. Of course, these are challenging times. But provided that Kitemill can sustain the development in a proper manner and in accordance with the government's orders, this work will continue.
