Persons showing noteworthy interest in FISH
Steps achieved       Noteworthy steps achieved toward FISH with references are invited
  • Potable water collected in a wing of a kite system. The water would come from the upper atmosphere. This has already been achieved in the Blue Hill kite systems.
  • LTA kite systems have flown for days. Record references are invited. [ ]
  • Man-lifting in kite systems has been achieved.   Duration records' references are invited.  [ ]   Human stays in sky by use of kite systems for ___________ hours, days, etc.    Human stays in sky by use of sailplane for ______ hours.  Duration of sailplane pilot: _______________.   Duration of solar-powered sailplane: _______________
  • Solar aircraft duration records:
  • Zephyr Solar Plane Lands After Over 2 Weeks (!!!) in the Air, Setting New World Record (uninhabited)
    The FAI set the official duration at 336 hours, 22 minutes and eight seconds.
    The three records are: 1) absolute duration of an unmanned autonomous vehicle (UAV) flight, 2) flight duration for a UAV of its class (unmanned craft weighing 50-500kg), and 3) altitude record for a UAV of its class (21,562m/70,741ft).
  • Uninhabited kite-flying duration records:

  • Eric Raymond
  • Eating a meal while in soaring flight.
  • Hygiene PRS while in soaring flight
  • Reading has been done while in soaring flight
  • Exercising has been done while in soaring flight
  • Praying has been done while in soaring flight.
  • Talking has been done while in soaring flight.
  • Studying has been done while in soaring flight.
  • Six persons have been in gliding flight on one hang glider at one time for a short duration.
  • Long-duration balloon voyages:      LDB
