Airbus Group Sponsorship Announcement

 

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.

Please see our attached press release for more information: NEWS RELEASE – AIRBUS PERLAN MISSION II – 2014 07 28

This doesn’t completely solve all our problems but it funds the core mission to a level that we can be sure that the mission will go ahead. It ends a long period of uncertainty for the Perlan and puts us back on track to break our own world record.
