About


 In honor of the 50th anniversary of that first step, we have remastered the Apollo 11 Flight Plan. With your support, we will recreate the 353 page historical document to be a beautifully designed premium Collector's Edition with the highest level of quality and precision. 

Our Flight Plan with be designed with custom artwork embossed onto PU leather. The finished product will be exactly as you see it in our photos and videos. Our priority is to make a statement piece for any collector or fan of the Apollo Missions to be proud of, one that looks and feels luxurious. 

We aim to begin to deliver by July 2019 in time for the anniversary but have given ourselves ample time with September as the cut off. With your support, everything is set to go!

50 years ago, Apollo 11 succeeded in its mission to land a man on the moon on the 20th of July, 1969. Astronaut Neil Armstrong's famous words "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" rang out around the world. It remains one of the most iconic successes in our history.

To help them get there, each astronaut was given a Flight Plan by Mission Control which was a minute-by-minute timeline of all of the activities scheduled for the Apollo 11 mission.

What you see in these photos is the actual item you will receive as a backer... we just need your help to bring our project to life by meeting the minimum order requirements for production. One of our stretch goals is to offer it in full colour if we get enough traction. Let's make it happen together!

The Flight Plan documents every activity set for the Apollo 11 mission with assigned targets of timed completion down to the minutes and seconds of every stage of the journey. It is indicative of the level of preparation and planning the Apollo teams used to make this unprecedented task possible. 

The Flight Plan was used by ground crew and astronautical personnel including Mission Control, Flight Engineers and other support teams. This included astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins and Neil Armstrong.

The Apollo 11 Flight Plan was issued just 20 days prior to the launch and outlines every aspect of the mission from Earth to the moon and back again. 

Whether you are an astronomy enthusiast, technology buff or someone who appreciates the lunar voyage, the Flight Plan is a remarkable piece of history and is a one of a kind collectable. 

Years of meticulous preparation, combined efforts and countless resources gave life to the dream of seeing earth... from the moon... with human eyes.

A celebration of such a magical moment in history wouldn't be complete without the inclusion of the beautiful artwork and designs made for the Apollo Missions. 

As a backer, you can choose our Collectable Patch Pack with 3 of the most significant designs (and obviously our favorites!):


THE APOLLO 11 MISSION PATCH



NASA MEATBALL INSIGNIA



NASA WORM LOGOTYPE (1975–1992)


PATCH FACTS :

Did you know the first NASA patch was created in 1965? Or the first official space patch was created by the Soviet Union in 1963 worn by Valentina Tereshkova?

Patch making was part of the team building exercise which went hand in hand with the mission name and objectives. Crews had to design their own patches as tradition!

The Shadows of the Moon and the Eagle in the Apollo 11 Patch do not match!

The crew decided to drop their names for the Apollo 11 Patch as they felt this mission was only possible because of so many people dedicated themselves to making it happen.

The Collectable Patch Pack invites you to help us bring this project to life!

ESTIMATED LANDING TIME! (Specifically, at Your Door!)

If funding is successful, production will begin as soon as May and delivered by no later than September 2019...we are actually gunning for the anniversary in July 2019 especially if we get funded sooner. 

We have so many ideas for our stretch goals to share with you, our first is if we reach funding we will include a 50th Anniversary patch as part of EVERY reward.

FAQs:

Q: Were you involved in the previous Apollo 11 campaign?

A: No. We're not sure what happened in the other project, but this is our first ever Kickstarter project and we are in no way connected with any previous projects. Despite it being our first Kickstarter project, we have plenty of sourcing, distribution, and fulfilment experience. It is our absolute mission to ensure our backers are 100% satisfied with the products they have pledged for. 

Risks and challenges

We have extensive experience in sourcing and manufacturing products so we are able to navigate challenges and overcome them as effectively as possible to deliver what we are assigned to.

We have already sourced our final production ready samples and have established relationships with our manufacturers before launching this project. We work with absolute confidence in delivering to our backers!
