Recent Pressure Suit Work

After a good first test flight, integrating suit with balloon, I've been working on modifications, often assisted by Pacific Spaceflight team members, to make adjustments and revisions based on what we've learned. I've shaped a new helmet / suit neck ring junction so we can start on another suit (always need severa; a main flying suit, a backup flying suit, and at least one 'test suit' for trying out new ideas, installed glove fingertip lights (red to preserve night vision during predawn suitup in balloon operations), and we have started training new team members in the many suitup, maintenance and flight operations. We're on our way UP!
