Hello FUBARians,

Long time no speak and I apologize for the delay.  It's been quite a while since I've updated any of my sites and I plan to update all of them.  I have some time now as I have completed a bunch of projects that were taking up a majority of my time.  You can read about those at the DARTH M site... (again I apologize for the pop-ups on these sites, but free is after all, free...)

So anyway, my company, Aerodynamics, won a contract with the NATIONAL SCIENTIFIC BALLOON FACILITY (www.NSBF.NASA.gov), a department of NASA, which started last April.  The contract which is for four years with two extensions, is for us to manage and provide flight crews for two aircraft (Conquest C-441 & King Air C-90) for them for administrative and balloon recovery purposes.

The admin. flights are just that, carrying the executives around for meetings, etc, but the recovery flights are a bit different.  They include carrying equipment and/or the payload specialists downrange for the termination of balloon, coordinating with ATC for airspace dedication and low-altitude path finding in order to assist ground crews once the payload and balloon have impacted.

It's been a lot of fun and very mission based, not the typical "hurry-up-and-wait" rigmarole of charter operations.  Anyway, that's what I've been up too for the past six months and why YOUR FREAKIN DAILY JOKE (YFDJ) has slipped as well as the sites.

So.  On that note, I hope all are well and to read up on my other projects, be sure to go to the DARTH M site.  Until next time, enjoy the new STUFF, FOTQ and the other goodies on THE NET that I've added/updated...

Talk later,

Dave CEO/Founder FUBAR's est.1989
