Congratulations to young scientists from the 3rd High School in Gdynia. On Saturday 20.10.2018 another goal in the R&D project was realized, which was to fly in a unmanned plane from the beginning of the stratosphere and land exactly in the indicated place. The drone was taken at a height of 11.5 km AGL by a meteorological balloon; meteorological samples and biological material were placed on board of the RPA.
It is a tiny step for mankind, a small step for unmanned aviation, an average step for meteorological measurements in the upper layers of the atmosphere, but a big step for these young ambitious people and their future.
We are proud to support this project from the technical side as well as from the coordination of airspace availability.
A large team of people, companies and institutions is involved in the project.
Soon a full report on the implementation and progress of this flight.
The next step is the height of 30km, i.e. the end of denser atmospheric layers..
