As 2018 comes to a close, it's time to look back on an awesome, amazing, ultra successful year for Perlan Project. The Airbus Perlan Mission II achieved many first-ever milestones with our core Perlan team plus our around the globe supporters. Included in this blog are a few photos, but there is a link below to a YouTube celebration of the "Perlan Best of Argentina." Those selected 150 photos come from the team during two months out of thousands of photos. Let no one doubt Airbus Perlan Mission II is a team effort every step of the way. Yes, the 3 world record altitude claims are sweet, but they are merely icing on the cake.
Perlan’s blog collects the thoughts and experiences of team members from the multiple disciplines needed to build and prepare the aircraft, plan the flight, and carry out the mission. Here, you’ll find insights from the designers, craftspeople, pilots, meteorologists, and support personnel who will make Perlan’s record ascents a reality. Perlan’s blog will be an opportunity to delve into the challenges and triumphs that travel with the giant sailplane.
