This week rockstar, aviator and aviation entrepreneur Bruce Dickinson visited Trondheim, Norway. Bruce was invited by industrial cluster MIDSEC to give a talk on the innovation, start-ups and his investments in drone technology.
The full day work shop took place at Maritime Robotics November 8th, same week as the arrival of the first F35 Lockheed Martin Aircrafts at Orland Air Force Base.
“Take advantage from the Base and Boost new Business!”
Chatting with local media, Bruce Dickinson pointed at several spin off possibilities from the establishment of the F35 main base. “This will create unique possibilities for the Mid Norway Region”, Dickinson said, pointing at the various maintenance arenas as well as different fields of education.
Heavy Music and Heavy Maintenance hand in hand.
The Iron Maiden lead singer knows what he is talking about. Being the founder and CEO of Cardiff Aviation as well as the owner of a Pilot Training Company in Wales, his expertise on maintenance and education within aviation is on high demand around the globe.
His Cardiff Aviation in Wales offers heavy maintenance of Airbus and Boeing Aircrafts. At the same airfield location Dickinson and his team offer pilot training using Boeing 747 -400 Full Flight Simulator.
Visit brought Bruce back to Bird-Eye-View Memories of Mid-Norway.
Bruce Dickinson knows the area of Mid-Norway very well from earlier visits. Dickinson has even seen the Norwegian fjords and mountains at high speed level from a birds eye view: flying in an old T33 “T-bird” fighter jet at Orland in 2013.
Dickinson remembers the flight as a one-of-a kind experience, and describes the low-terrain flight as spectacular.
Pilot “Iron” Dickinson: “I`ll be back”.
The Iron Maiden lead singer and passionate aviator, captain Dickinson, flies a string of aircrafts, including the Iron Maiden Ed Force One Boeing 747 JumboJet and his very own Fokker DR1 World War I Tri-plane.
Dickinson was given the name “Iron” by the Tiger Pilots Unit at Orland Tiger Squadron 338. He wears his Tiger Pilot Suit on different occasions like Air Shows around the globe, to honor the Norwegian Tiger Squadron.
Being asked, Pilot Bruce “Iron” Dickinson promised this visit will definitely not be last : “I`ll be back”.
