As some of you may have noticed the Perlan team are back flying again... still trying to get to their goal of 90,000ft.

You might find this podcast of interest as it includes an interview with chief pilot Jim Payne. Jim is both a very experienced glider pilot and fast jet and test pilot, he talks about towing Perlan up to 40,000 and soaring to their record heights.... fascinating stuff.
