On September 15-16 representatives from Comodoro and Buenos Aires ENAC and ANAC came to El Calafate to see the Perlan 2. Empressa Argentina Navegacion Aerea (similar to ATC) is a brand new agency in Argentina which started August 1.
Walter Salama, Director of Relaciones Institucionales, and Marcelo Couvin, Comision Fiscalizadora, represented EANA from Buenos Aires. From Administracion Nacional de Aviacion Civil (similar to FAA) was Fernando Nocito, Director de Relaciones Institucionales, and Silvina Stampella, Chief of Development of General and Sports Aviation.
Of special interest to Airbus Perlan Mission II was the offer of a Letter of Cooperation from EANA. Walter and Ed Warnock signed this new agreement on the left wing of Perlan 2. Perlan Project presented our visitors with caps and patches in appreciation for their work for us on the NOTAM allowing Perlan to fly to 90,000 feet. Their logos are on our website as supporters of Perlan Project. There were well earned smiles all around.
