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.

Rotterdam The Hague Airport

To take off, an airplane needs a runway. Luckily, there is one right around the corner. Our full-scale aircraft will take to the skies of the Netherlands from Rotterdam in 2021.

Rotterdam The Hague Airport is leading the way in sustainable aviation. In the next few years, a large solar park and synthetic fuel plant will be set up at the airport, and work is being done to raise awareness. AeroDelft and RTHA are working together to organise various events dedicated to solving some of the challenges facing sustainable aviation.
