Two Commercial Balloon Flights (HAB)

UpLift-1 Securing the neck and the payloadTwo Commercial Balloon (HAB) Bookings

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.

General Update:

Lots happening:

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.

Jason is well involved with the Riverwood Squadron of the Australian Air League here in Sydney. They meet on Friday nights at 7pm. You can find your nearest squadron here:

Interested in High Altitude Balloon Flights

We have had 16 balloon flights with 15 being commercial. All payloads have been successfully recovered. If you wish to book a commercial HAB flight for science, advertising or any other reason, please contact me here:

Our prices are reasonable and although we can never guarantee the recovery of a payload, we are the most successful in the world at recovering payloads. Our current capability is up to 4kg, but we are developing a capability to over 15kg.
