Ascender 36 Preped for Flight

The team did a full vehicle assemble and test on Ascender 36 on Sunday. We’re getting her ready for the second flight.

The vehicle numbering system has changed. The transition is a little confusing. Before all the airship got a number based on length, Ascender 36 is 36 feet long for example. This became a problem when switching to metric. Is Ascender 100 called Ascender 28 in the UK?  To simplify it all we gone to sequential system. The new 94 foot airship is Ascender 9 because it’s the ninth one we’ve built.  We are not going back to change the names of the older airship. Upon that path lays chaos. So Ascender 36 remains Ascender 36.
