UKHAS sets out to develop flight insurance for members

The UKHAS had their annual gathering in London yesterday. Various presenters and members gave talks topics including super pressure balloons, radio tracking, and bio prospecting in the biosphere. The meeting, full at its 50 participant capacity, also involved a discussion in which the topic of insurance for high altitude ballooning was discussed. The outcome of this section of the meeting was very interesting and now a groups will work on formalising UKHAS so it can offer it’s members ‘flight’ insurance. This comes after members expressed a general interest in insuring their launch and identified specific instances where payloads had landed on power lines.
