Aviation means innovation. There is a constant struggle between manufacturers to design aircraft that always fly farther, reach higher altitudes, are more load-bearing, and faster. This struggle brings with it innovative developments. In order to contribute to humanity, Paul Allen founded a brand new aerospace company Stratolaunch Systems Corporation in 2011.

The company has been working on the Stratolaunch project since its first day and has collaborated with Scaled Composites, one of The Northrop Grumman subsidiaries. As a result of eight years of hard work, Stratolaunch took the most significant step on the road and successfully completed its first flight. The Stratolaunch aircraft took flight from the Mojave Air and Space Port on April 13, 2019, and landed successfully at the Mojave Air and Space Port after 2.5 hours of flight.
