Airborne 01.18.22: HIGH Alt Perlan II, 5G NOTAMs!, Virgin Orbit

Also: SuperBowl TFR, Piper Adds MSU, Boeing's 4th Quarter, Collier Nominations

Thales and Iridium have joined the infamous ultra-high-altitude Perlan continuous flight program.

The engineless glider can now avail itself of the Iridium communications network, offering the world's highest internet hot spot at more than 65,000 feet. Perlan will use their newfound connectivity for inflight communications, as well as live streaming from both the glider and its Egret super tow plane. The FAA has published its first round of Notices To Air Missions regarding the soon-to-be activated 5G cell networks, placing warnings over 1,462 airports in an effort to ease the industry into a post-5G world with minimal issue. The restrictions put into place warn that radio altimeters are unreliable and not authorized for use unless equipped with approved alternative methods of compliance. Virgin Orbit confirmed it successfully deployed into orbit all 7 customer satellites onboard its LauncherOne rocket during it’s Above the Clouds mission. Virgin Orbit’s 747 carrier aircraft named Cosmic Girl took off from the Mojave Air and Space Port on January 13th at approximately 1:40 PM and flew to a launch site over the Pacific Ocean, about 50 miles south of the Channel Islands. After a smooth release from the aircraft, the LauncherOne rocket ignited and propelled itself towards space, ultimately deploying its payload into a precise target orbit approximately 500 kilometers above the Earth’s surface. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
