LAUNCH SITES

All Near Space flights launched in the UK require permission from the Civil Aviation Authority.

We've selected ten sites across the country which are ideal for launching your Astropod and made arrangements with the CAA, so there's no lengthy and complex application process.

When you redeem your gas voucher, simply select your preferred launch site and enter your planned launch window and you're good to go!

Some sites restrict you from launching at certain times of the week, or when the payload is travelling in a certain direction. For example, you cannot launch from the Durham site if the payload will be flying North. These are legal conditions set down by the CAA and if ignored could result in serious danger or damage to persons and property and you could incur a fine and a prison sentence. Fly safe!
