Comment

This was a flight I have been hoping to accomplish for a long time. It was cold. Very cold. -70F Everything came together, weather, tow pilot, airspace access, and friends to help make it happen. The lift I found at the end of the flight which carried me up the last 2000' was very strong and I suspect 40,000'+ would have been possible. I was having trouble with very stiff controls and decided I was done and should get down to warmer temperatures. My primary 02 system was an A-14 (new fabrication from Fluid Power) and an MBU-20/P mask held tightly to my face with a Bonehead helmet. (backup system was a fixed flow off the main 02 bottle, and then a separate bailout bottle.) I monitored blood oxygenation through the entire flight, always observing high 90's percent. Special thanks to Britton Bluedorn for all the advice with the oxygen system, Marty Eiler with hardware help and advice, Zach Yamauchi for being such an enthusiastic and effective organizer (and great pilot), and Matthias Gastler for all the help on the ground on a difficult day for launches. Very big thanks to Jeff Montgomery for towing...really great job. Did I mention it was very very cold?
