On August 22 we awoke to an email announcement that the September 3, 2017 high altitude flight had been approved by the FAI as a Soaring World Record. This validated the US National Record awarded in March by the NAA for Absolute Altitude of 52,221 feet or 15,917 meters. This is the icing on the cake. Perlan Project has several goals: Exploration, Innovation, and Inspiration.
We are not just about breaking records. However it is gratifying to make history along the way. Perlan Soars High!
