Stratolaunch Aircraft Makes First Rollout To Begin Fueling Tests 2017.06.02

Mojave Air and Space Port, California, USA - May 31, 2017 - We're excited to announce that Stratolaunch aircraft has reached a major milestone in its journey toward providing convenient, reliable, and routine access to low Earth orbit. Today, we're moving the Stratolaunch aircraft out of the hangar - for the first time ever - to conduct aircraft fueling tests. This marks the completion of the initial aircraft construction phase and the beginning of the aircraft ground and flight testing phase.

Mojave Air and Space Port, California, USA – May 31, 2017

Stratolaunch, founded in 2011 by Paul G. Allen, is developing an air-launch platform to make access to space more convenient, reliable, and routine.

 
 
We believe that normalizing access to low Earth orbit (LEO) has the potential to redefine our lives by creating more opportunities for commercial, philanthropic and governmental organizations to collect rich and actionable data and drive advancements in science, research, and technology from space.

Stratolaunch is the world’s largest aircraft by wingspan and is the largest all-composite plane ever built.

Utilizing six Boeing 747 engines for a payload capacity of over 500,000 lbs. and an operational range of approximately 2,000 nautical miles, Stratolaunch is capable of delivering payloads to multiple orbits and inclinations in a single mission.

Stratolaunch’s reusability and air-launch capabilities enable us to take an airport-style approach to operations for launch services.

Stratolaunch will take off from a runway, rather than a logistically vulnerable fixed range, which allows us to avoid hazards such as inclement weather, airborne traffic and heavy marine activity.

Stratolaunch’s airborne launch platform significantly reduces the risk of costly delays or cancellations.

Stratolaunch is currently under construction at the Mojave Air & Space Port in Mojave, Calif. We aim to be fully operational by the end of this decade.

Over the past few weeks, we have removed the fabrication infrastructure, including the three-story scaffolding surrounding the aircraft, and rested the aircraft’s full weight on its 28 wheels for the first time.

This was a crucial step in preparing the aircraft for ground testing, engine runs, taxi tests, and ultimately first flight.
Once we achieved weight-on-wheels, it enabled us to weigh the Stratolaunch aircraft for the first time, coming in at approximately 500,000 lbs.

That may sound heavy, but remember that the Stratolaunch aircraft is the world’s largest plane by wingspan, measuring 385 ft. – by comparison, a National Football League field spans only 360 ft.

The aircraft is 238 ft. from nose to tail and stands 50 ft. tall from the ground to the top of the vertical tail.
The Stratolaunch aircraft is designed for a max takeoff weight of 1,300,000 lbs., meaning it’s capable of carrying payloads up to approximately 550,000 lbs.

As we announced last fall , we will initially launch a single Orbital ATK Pegasus XL vehicle with the capability to launch up to three Pegasus vehicles in a single sortie mission.

We have already started preparations for launch vehicle delivery to our Mojave facilities.

We’re actively exploring a broad spectrum of launch vehicles that will enable us to provide more flexibility to customers.
Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be actively conducting ground and flightline testing at the Mojave Air and Space Port.

Founded by Paul G. Allen in 2011, Stratolaunch is based at the Mojave Air & Space Port, with Scaled Composites leading its construction.

This is a first-of-its-kind aircraft, so we’re going to be diligent throughout testing and continue to prioritize the safety of our pilots, crew and staff.

Stratolaunch is on track to perform its first launch demonstration as early as 2019.

This marks a historic step in our work to achieve Paul G. Allen’s vision of normalizing access to low Earth orbit.

It is proud day for us at Stratolaunch, for our partners at Scaled Composites, and for our founder Paul Allen.

We have a lot of exciting activity ahead as we enter the testing process, and we look forward to sharing our progress during the coming months.
