Ensuring the utmost safety of our HALO flights is a top priority. We design our systems using the stringent industry measures and methodology used in aeronautics projects, matching the latest safety standards of aviation. We follow all available regulations for different project areas, and have presented a specific regulatory framework to the certification authorities to define and enhance HALO’s safety features.
To achieve our goal of providing a unique experience in a safe environment, we install multiple safety systems. These include systems for landing, oxygen, fire detection and suppression, and communication and navigation. For safe descent and landing we have three parachutes. Typically the steerable parachute will be sufficient, but in the event of a balloon malfunction during any stage of the flight, we will deploy a round 'in-line' parachute. In the unlikely case that one or both malfunction, our emergency descent system will allow for a safe landing.
