Clean our skies


The first aircraft took to the skies just over 100 years ago. Now, over 23,000 aircraft carry more than 4 billion passengers around the world every year. But bringing the world closer together has come at a cost.

AeroDelft is a TU Delft student team with one mission: prove that emission-free aviation is possible by developing the world’s first liquid hydrogen-powered aircraft.

Curious about our team? In the video below we show all the departments within AeroDelft and explain what they do. Some of the team members working on AeroDelft are showed in this video, if you’d like to know more about all the team members make sure to check this page.

Although our aircraft is small, ourambition is not.


Although our aircraft is small, our ambition is not.


We understand that not flying is not an option. We must make aviation sustainable, and increasing an aircraft’s efficiency is simply not good enough anymore. It is time for something far more radical: changing the fuel. 

Our vision is to prove and promote liquid hydrogen as an alternative to conventional aviation fuel, and to inspire for change.

We believe our efforts with hydrogen will kick-start the development of larger, commercial aircraft such as the Greenliner. Our goal is to have the first, fully-sustainable aircraft flying by 2030.

Fly like a Phoenix


Phoenix is the first of its kind. The full-scale, 2-person aircraft will be the first to implement a liquid hydrogen fuel cell propulsion system. Just over 10kg of liquid hydrogen will send Phoenix over 2000km. A 1:3 scale prototype is set to already fly in July 2021.

1:3 scale prototype

1kg liquid hydrogen

7h flight time

500km range

About us


Founded by two TU Delft students in 2017, AeroDelft is currently working on a big project: Project Phoenix. Today, the AeroDelft team consists of 44 students from 17 different countries studying at the TU Delft, Inholland, University of Utrecht, InHolland Delft, Haagse Hogeschool, VU Amsterdam, Windesheim University of Applied Sciences and the Willem de Kooning Academie.
