The Perlan II is set up in the RDD shop in Redmond, OR - May 2015
The Portland Mini Maker Fair has come again. We were given the same booth that we had last year, so I think the Portlanders will be expecting us in the same place every year.
With the funding from Airbus kicking the project back into high gear, we have started moving parts and getting organised for the final assembly. We have a new workspace and the first ‘fun’ task is checking if the entire glider fits in the space.
We are very excited to announce that Airbus Group is sponsoring the Perlan Project. This deal will allow the Perlan 2 glider to be finished, flight tested and fly to record altitudes.
The official announcement of the sponsorship will be made at EAA Oshkosh AirVenture at 2pm. Hopefully shortly after the announcement we will have pictures and videos of the event.
The Perlan Project is going to make an important announcement about a new sponsor on the 28th of July at the EAA Airventure “Oshkosh” airshow. If you are going to be at the show, make sure you are in the main ramp area at 2pm on Monday.
