Airbus Perlan Mission II, an initiative to fly a glider to the edge of space to collect insights on high-altitude flight, weather, and climate change, returned to flight this week. Pilots Jim Payne and Miguel Iturmendi achieved its highest altitude to date, reaching 30,615 feet. Perlan 2 will spend spring soaring in mountain wave conditions in the skies above the Sierra Nevada, before deploying in May to Argentina. “This past year our team gained invaluable insight and experience from flying the glider in and around the Andes Mountains,” said Ed Warnock, CEO of The Perlan Project. Dronemaker DJI has released more details about its soon-to-be-available first person VR goggles which have been in development for a year or so.

With an appearance not all that different than many of the multi-copters we’re all flying these days, Google’s Larry Page, has entered the aviation arena with a personal flying machine that is supposed to operate in the 'ultralight' category.
