To start your own space mission, this app accompanies you step by step through your stratospheric mission, giving you breathtaking shots from 40,000 feet up. From setting goals, planning your mission, choosing the equipment that suits you best, organizing permits, launching your weather balloon, and recovering and analyzing data logger results, the app will guide you through the entire stratosphere project. Whether you plan your mission privately, with friends, as part of a technical work or the stratosphere flight as a teacher with your students, here you will find all the answers to your questions.

The app offers the possibility to use different tools mobile and promptly directly at the place of departure. Thus, you can react immediately to changes mobile:

Weather forecast: Monitor the weather in your starting region. Our traffic light system checks the conditions on the starting day and predicts whether it is possible to start your weather balloon at the scheduled time or, if necessary, choose the alternative date.

Checklist: Did we really think of everything? The checklist is the ultimate control system, so you're guaranteed to make no mistake during the excitement on the launch day.

Helium Calculator: How much helium / balloon gas does my weather balloon need? Calculate the required amount of helium / balloon gas directly at the launch site or adjust the ascent rate / maximum ascent in the last second, for example.

Flight route prediction: Where does my probe land if I start the weather balloon in the next two minutes? Use the mobility of the app to accurately predict your flight path to within a few miles and, if necessary, to adapt to changes in the amount of helium / balloon gas.

In any case, the Stratoflights app is part of every stratosphere mission. Take advantage of the mobile advantages of the tools and the checklist, so that your mission will not only turn into an adventure of a special kind, but an experience that you will never forget. Promised!
