Our partners.

We are indebted to and proud of our partners. Only through their motivation and generosity are we able to do what we do: inspiring a new generation of engineers by designing, building and flying the world’s first liquid hydrogen-powered aircraft.

We are still looking to secure the rest of our budget for the next few years in order to keep the project moving smoothly. Should you be interested in supporting the project, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would be delighted to discuss any opportunities and find common goals!

The Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR)

The NLR, then the Government Service for Aeronautical Studies (RSL), was founded in 1919 with the goal of increasing the safety of military aircraft. With the emergence of civil aviation, part of the NLR’s focus was shifted to cover this branch of aircraft as well. Nowadays, the NLR is a leading force, driving research and development in the Dutch and international aerospace industries.

The NLR is supporting AeroDelft in testing and certification validation for Project Phoenix, as well as providing knowledge and expertise to help in its development.

Delft University of Technology

Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is the largest and oldest public technological university in the Netherlands. Founded in 1842, it is typically seen as under the top 20 technical universities worldwide. The university is comprised of 8 faculties, 6 of which are represented in the AeroDelft team, and numerous research facilities.

The TU Delft supports the team by providing office and workshop space, as well as facilities in which to manufacture the aircraft and its components. On top of this, a number of the university’s faculties provide research and knowledge support and also contribute financially to the project.
