June Stats

The good news is that this June was the best for 3 years (stats not so readily available before that). More launches and more hours flown (probably more km’s flown but those don’t get recorded). There were 16 days we flew on – most days in a month this year and the same number as June last year (only 10 the year before). 365 launches (307 last year) clocking up 179 hours (131 last year) means the average flight time increased by 4 minutes to 29.
Starting with “the good news is” implies that there’s some bad news. Well, there’s a bit of “not so good news”. The total number of launches for the flying year (i.e. starting October) was 1,823 at the end of June – that’s 66 less than the same time last year (3.5% down). However, total flying time flown was 672 hours and that’s 50 hours more than last year.
I’m a bit late with this posting and we are now well into July and it’s looking like this year will be well short of the same month last year. With any luck the course week will help narrow the gap.
