Fly Your Satellite! (FYS) is an educational programme whose main, but not only, focus is the verification campaign of CubeSats built by university students – a phase with high learning value for the students . The programme was kicked off with the help of six CubeSat teams selected in June 2013. The programme aims at offering students the opportunity to benefit from the transfer of technical competence and experience from ESA specialists. In addition, by teaching best practises for spacecraft design, development and verification, the programme aims at increasing the CubeSats’ chances for mission success. The FYS programme is structured in four phases, from the integration of the CubeSat Flight Model up to the operation of the satellite in space. During each phase, the CubeSats have to undergo expert reviews that need to be passed in order for the student teams to gain access to the following phase. In the current edition of the programme, the four phases, all run under the supervision of space experts
