We also plan to have a flight website with real-time updates to twitter and telemetry information posted on a map, so if you send your latitude, longitude, and call sign, we will post that information (but not your phone or email, of course) on our map for greater situational awareness and recognition.

Thanks to all for your interest and support. We’ll see you in the air and on the radio!
