About us

NADG AS was established in 2017 and is a fully independently owned Norwegian company. Our knowledge and experience makes NADG uniquely positioned to take the next step and build the Norwegian Competence Center Aviation (NCCA) close to Stavanger Airport, Sola. 

NADG is eligible as an industrial cooperation partner by the Ministry of Defense (MoD). 

OUR Partners

Partnerships drive solutions and we can achieve better utilization of resources if partners collaborate to optimize networks and competences. Our main partners are listed below. 


Creating a Norwegian powerhouse for aviation training, simulation, logistics and maintenance is the best way to ensure the safety of everyone who flies to go to work. 

We pledge to work together with our customers to deliver safety-focused, cost efficient operations within current and future industries relevant to our markets. 

Building future competence

Training based on Norwegian and Nordic conditions and scenarios is important. Safety and security is about having the freedom of choice so that operations do not stop completely if one helicopter type is grounded. We must also use the latest and best available technology to reduce fuel consumption, noise output and a smaller climate footprint. 

When the Bell 525 comes into service offshore, operators will have an alternative to choose from. By introducing a new type of helicopters on the Norwegian Continental Shelf in 2022, we will contribute to improve operations, reduce risk and costs. 

Building future competence also includes training drone pilots, as drones are used in more industries. Here, too, expertise is needed on local conditions such as harsh weather, wind and geography, which is an important building block in the Norwegian Competence Center Aviation (NCCA).

Our team

CEO Ole-Petter Bakken har worked relentlessly since 2000 with one goal in mind – to build a National Competence Center for Aviation at Stavanger Airport, Sola. Our team has over 20 years average experience in the helicopter, oil and gas industry.
