     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.

     First step completed

    The EARL ProjectThe EARL-D3 test vehicle has now worked as planned. On 31st March, there was a successful flight, in which the vehicle took off vertically, rose to around 400m altitude, and then under autopilot control flew a curved glide path back to a landing within 50m of the take-off point.

     First Step

    The EARL ProjectA sub-scale test vehicle has flown for the first time. While it gave some very useful data, some systems did not work, despite being tested on the ground before the flight.

     Progress with the EARL

    The EARL ProjectStatic tests on the small rocket motors for a 75cm-long test vehicle have gone well and given us a rocket motor we can trust. Flights of the test vehicle are expected in mid to late  January. We are waiting for clear weather at the range where the test will be carried out. Design work for the EARL-D4, now with a 3.0m-long hull, is in progress.
