Frank Strang

A former RAF pilot, Frank Strang is the CEO of the Shetland Space Centre (Saxa Vord Spaceport) as well as being a Director of Saxa Vord Resort, which is on a former RAF base in the Shetland Isles.

Strang’s proposed rocket launch site on the isle of Unst in Scotland’s Shetland Isles has attracted significant investment in the early stages of the project.

Frank has attracted some controversy, particularly with previous business interests on the island, having liquidated the company that managed accommodation for oil and gas workers from the North Sea.

However, his rocket launch plans have seen significant support from locals on the islands as well as from many prominent politicians.
