Greater Danbury – Earlier today, the Empire of Aenopia and Commonwealth of Essexia came together and agreed to form an organisation which would include each nation’s space agencies – the AAA and EAST respectively.
The agreement occurred between the Rt. Hon. Jack MP (Foreign Minister of Essexia, Chief Administrator of EAST) and Emperor Logan Ross (Emperor of Aenopia and Administrator of the AAA) this afternoon, where the two agreed to form the International Aerospace Community to discuss aerospace, release news and important events, and bring together the micronational aerospace community.
It incorporates a number of projects including the Starless IV rocket and Helliwell Awyren 5 of Aenopia, and the Epstein Mk.IV rocket and JAFAP/F-3A Heron from Essexia. It aims to make the progress of all of these programs more public and reported, whilst advancing their development through cooperation.
Regarding the endeavour, Jack had this to say: “Imagine if NASA and Roscosmos came together to cooperate to make the aerospace industry more advanced and regulated. That’s basically what we’re doing with the IAC – as far as I believe, EAST and the AAA have started a micronational space race, but that doesn’t mean we can’t cooperate in certain areas. It’s all a bit of fun really.”
As the IAC gets off the ground, membership is expected to be limited whilst progress will occur behind closed doors. However, the organisation aims to make that progress well known in the Micronational community.
IAC has asked that some links to contact the organisation be made available:
- MicroWiki: https://micronations.wiki/wiki/International_Aerospace_Community

Jack is the Minister of Defence, Chair of the Grand Unified Micronational and a previous First Minister of Essexia.
