The assembly process of the STABILO-1B spaceship for the Mission2 flight, scheduled for March 2007, is almost completed. The carrier balloon, five times bigger than the one used on Mission1 flight, will enter into fabrication at the middle of February. The new flight procedures will involve, beside the carrier balloon, two smaller balloons. In this situation we estimate a true “air show”.

ARCA is building a new assembly hangar for the STABILO vehicle. The facility will enter into operational use at the end of February and it will be equipped with environmental control.

More than 90 journalists announced their intention to participate at Mission2 flight. We estimate to break the previous record of 90 journalists at Demonstrator2B flight in September 2004.

At the end of February ARCA will publish a document regarding the STABILO flight program that will end in 2009.
