Test flight at Spaceport deemed a success

New Mexico

NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – A successful test flight at Spaceport America is being celebrated. HAPSmobile’s Sunglider reached an altitude of more than 60,000 feet above sea level during a 20-hour test flight last month.

Known as a “cell tower in the sky,” Sunglider aims to provide better communications to under-served areas. The success of this stratospheric test fight is a major step forward in this mission.
