On his third flight Steiger made the historic crossing November 16, 2011.
The invitation to fly is an invitation to join the Expedition in the truest sense of the word. Passengers realize the high-adventure nature of such a bold crossing and must be willing to hike or helicopter out of a less than convenient landing scenario. Although we do not launch unless we anticipate “smooth sailing”, part of the adventure of ballooning is that each flightpath is unique.
Passengers will be duly recorded in the Ship’s Manifest and become a part of the history documented in the coffee table book describing the expedition to the world.
