Meet the Team
Only once or twice in a lifetime a chance comes along to be involved in something important and historic. The Perlan Project is one of those opportunities. A team of talented and dedicated people have come together to fly higher on wings than anyone has achieved before and to make a significant contribution to our understanding of the weather on our planet.
The Perlan team is made up of scientists, educators, engineers, administrators, designers and pilots who have been working together for years to design and build a one of a kind pressurized glider to explore the edge of space. They have backgrounds from NASA, the Air Force, major Universities and corporations. Between the team members they hold dozens of aviation records, credit for academic papers, design awards and educational awards. The team is from all over the world - the United States, Argentina, Spain, Australia, Germany, France and Canada.
