Message from Miguel Á. Castillo Acero of Aernnova
Aernnova Engineering has a clear interest in participating in the BOOSTER commercial sub-orbital aircraft project.
We have been working as part of the BOOSTER Consortium since 2008. I am convinced that the BOOSTER project will be a success, having in mind the level of the other partners participating and the pragmatism that has been displayed in preparing the engineering and business activities during these past years.
Aernnova has already committed resources to the feasibility work and will continue to contribute work to making further progress in these activities.
Aernnova is experienced in collaborating on complex international large aircraft programs and the international consortium of expert companies appears to be well suited to the challenge. Our main objective is to use our complex aviation engineering expertise to provide best value solutions regarding the design, development, and certification of the sub-orbital aircraft.
This is an intriguing project with great depth that has been truly assembled across the international landscape to address some interesting markets. The project’s potential for international visibility is large where we expect to demonstrate our brand of high value engineering.
