    Welcome to the Spacefleet Association

    The Association has been set up to support the Spacefleet Project, to build a re-usable space vehicle, which will be able to take payloads into sub-orbital space and then glide back from space to a soft landing. Larger versions could put satellites into orbit (and bring them back). If you are interested in the project, please take a look at it here and send an email requesting membership of this site to admin@spacefleet.org.uk.

     Waiting for progress

    The EARL ProjectThe EARL-D4 has been ready to fly on its first test flight since February. We are waiting for a permit from the Romanian Civil Aviation Authority, which we hope to receive in a few weeks' time. We should then be able to do the series of four test flights next Spring.
