Along with our other aerospace work and some non-commercial flights we have new bookings for two commercial balloon flights – one in August and one in September. These will be normal flights and both will have our new cutdown system onboard. We expect to operate it and full test it even if the balloon bursts first.
Both commercial flights are for advertising and we are seeing an upturn in the number of bookings we are receiving.
The WotzUp website was down for 2 weeks. It appears that they gave me the wrong restoration file! it was empty. I finally found a support person that finally understood my problem and tonight we are back “on the air” – just back on hour ago from the time of this post.
