For three separate reasons, the three Perlan Project principals are all going to be at the Red Bull Air Race in San Diego next weekend. See the Red Bull Air Race web site for information about the race.
Since we each have different reasons for going, we will be barracking for different pilots in the race. Depending on who wins, the mood in the Perlan camp could get a bit frosty. The pilots we are mainly watching are Mike Goulian and Matt Hall, the rookie from Australia. Matt is still a member at the Hunter Valley Gliding club, where he first learned to fly gliders and ultralights.
