For decades aerospace and aviation were the area of large, slow and conservative institutes. However, this is changing rapidly. With unmanned flights including flying Uber taxis and a Tesla which are orbiting the Earth we have launched a new era where startups are able to fly, launch and orbit as much as the existing parties.

Aerospace is more than drones, rockets and flying taxis. For example VR and AI are able to open up opportunities previously unknown to the industry, and are probably able to decrease cost and/or increase safety in ways which are unprecedented.

Still, aviation is a difficult industry to get going. You most likely need large up-front investments, and proven technology to have an impact. YES!Delft is perfectly suited for your launch as we have collaborations with NLR, faculty of aerospace engineering, among others. Give your flight startup an enormous boost by joining YES!Delft’s incubator.
