Mike Alsbury Memorial Fund

Donation protected
Who we are: Scaled Composites employees, friends and family of Mike and Michelle.

How this money will be given to Mike's family: Gofundme has an option to cut a check for the lump-sum of the donations. This check will be given to Michelle, Mike's wife, once we close the campaign.

Additional note: Because we have received so much support and reached our initial goal in one day, we are going to keep this page open until further notice.

Media requests: Due to the ongoing NTSB investigation, we have been instructed not to respond to any media requests at this time. 

Last but not least, this money is going to the family. We have Mike's best interest at heart. If you need to contact anyone, please feel free to send an email to the contact listed on this page.

This fundraiser is being managed by Mike's friends and co-workers at Scaled Composites.

Michael (Mike) Alsbury, Test Pilot and Project Engineer for Scaled Composites, passed away on October 31, 2014 due to an anomaly during flight test. Mike was a husband, a father of two small children (ages 10 and 7), amazing friend and co-worker. Mike had worked with Scaled for over 15 years.  This is a tragic loss that will leave a void in Mike’s family, the Scaled family, and the surrounding community for years to come.  We would like to do anything we can to support Michelle and his two children.
