En español: Vuelo de expansión de sobre.

El pronóstico fue para una buena onda estratosférica. Hizo 15 puntos de prueba de aleteo y calidad de vuelo en FL650 y superiores, por lo que la escalada se ralentizó.

Creemos que este es el vuelo sostenido más alto de un avión subsónico alado, tripulado.

Reclamando récords mundiales de altitud absolutos, sudamericanos y estadounidenses.

In English: Envelope expansion flight.

The forecast was for good stratospheric wave. Did 15 flutter and flying qualities test points at FL650 and above so the climb was slowed.

We believe that this is the highest sustained flight by a winged, manned, subsonic aircraft.

Claiming World, South American, and US Absolute Altitude Records.
