From Aviation Heritage
to the Future of Drones
Riga, the capital of Latvia, is the home of FIXAR. It is not a coincidence that FIXAR built a nest in the historic aviation powerhouse of Europe. Early in the 20th Century, Riga was known as one of the largest European hubs of industrial innovation. The greatest inventors and engineers of the time worked here, changing the face of the industry. Igor Sikorsky, the creator of the first heavy multi-engine aircraft in the world, was a well-known Riga innovator.
Nowadays, the capital city of Riga has become a thriving international hub for unmanned aircraft building, fostering fertile ground for developing industry-leading drone solutions.
