Solvay is proud to congratulate Scaled Composites for successfully flying the Stratolaunch aircraft for the first time. This twin-fuselage aircraft is the world’s largest aircraft by wingspan and was designed to air launch rockets into space.

Solvay’s innovative out of autoclave prepreg technology is extensively used on the primary structure of the Stratolaunch aircraft. Indeed, Solvay’s VTM 264 was utilised to manufacture the plane’s fuselage, wing skins, empennage, ribs, spars and bulkheads.

We wish Scaled Composites and Stratolaunch Systems Corporation success on the next steps of the program.
