Llandebr Space Centre

The Llandebr Space Centre is a proposed project to facilitate horizontal rocket launches from a location in Snowdonia, Wales.

The project would see aeroplanes take off from the existing airfield, which would then launch rockets carrying satellites from a height of around 20,000 feet. The satellites would then be taken to their orbit by the final stage of the launch vehicle where they would be deployed to their final orbit.

The Llandebr Space Centre project was first submitted as a proposal by Snowdownia Aerospace in 2018 in which it outlined plans to use the existing airfield for horizontal launches.

A similar project exists at Newquay Airport, where Virgin Orbit are preparing for horizontal launch from the planned Spaceport Cornwall. Virgin Orbit have secured significant funding for their project.
