Four Research Benefits Of The Perlan II Flight
The Airbus Perlan Mission II glider will attempt to break the record for high altitude flight by reaching 90,000 ft. this summer in Argentina. This mission will gather research on greenhouse gases, ozone, high altitude flight and climate change. Last weekend, Airbus CEO Tom Enders flew in the Perlan II glider for a test flight in Minden, Nevada. In interviews with Enders, Perlan CEO Ed Warnock, Chief Meteorologist Elizabeth Austin, and Board Member Stephane Fymat, the group explained the many research benefits that will come from flying the glider.
