After some thinking, it has been decided to extend the deadline for qualifying flights to 31st December 2016, thus all balloons launched up to and including the 31st December will be eligible for one (or more!) of our grand prizes. Don’t worry if you missed the boat the first time around, registration remains open to all and we’d like to remind everyone that schools are welcome to enter as many teams as they can to try to win all the prizes.
The advantage of this change is that we can therefore celebrate the entirety of the 150th Anniversary Year of the Royal Aeronautical Society! We are also aware of the time pressures around the end of the summer term (best of luck with exams everyone!) and hope that in moving the deadline more students can get a shot at trying their hand at High Altitude Ballooning.
So register now to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Royal Aeronautical Society and be in for a chance to win your school up to three thousand pounds!
