We now have a permit from the Romanian Ministry of Defence, to test-fly these vehicles at a military range in Romania. the first flights could occur later, this month (October), if our paperwork is deemed to be all in order and the weather is kind to us..

     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.
