Our partners.


Since we are working at the forefront of sustainable technology, we are dealing with fuel, systems and parts that are not yet commonplace. We are indebted to and proud of our existing sponsors. 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 have managed to secure a sizable portion of our budget and invaluable in-kind support. We are, however, always looking for new sponsors willing to help us achieve our goals. 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!


Project Partners.


Royal Netherlands Aerospace Centre (Royal NLR)

The Royal 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.

AkzoNobel

Coatings Partner

Headquartered in the Netherlands and with a portfolio of brands trusted around the world, AkzoNobel are experts in the proud craft of making paints and coatings. AkzoNobel has a passion for paint and a clear sustainability agenda driving their growth, innovation and productivity – making them a perfect match for AeroDelft.

AkzoNobel is supporting AeroDelft by providing their high-performing aerospace coatings for our aircraft as well as technical expertise to help in their application.

Delft University of Technology

Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is the largest and oldest public technological university in the Netherlands, founded in 1842. 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.

TU Delft Sirius Laser Facility

The Sirius Laser Facility is a research facility for Laser Material Processing and Laser Drilling, based around a 1 kW optical power excimer laser. The facility is available for both commercial projects and research collaboration. The facility is helping us with the production of our boundary layer suction panels by lasering the half million suction holes of 0.12 mm diameter for our scaled prototype!
