20 Financing of HALO Activities Given the financial situation of university research providing the funds to operate a research aircraft is clearly a challenge. At present there are several models under discussion, which must ensure that the following conditions are met: That the German universities will be able to use HALO in proportion to their capabilities. That the universities will be guaranteed a sufficiently large fraction of HALO flight hours. That continuous funding is available for the operation of HALO, since there is a substantial fraction of fixed cost (e.g. salaries of the crew) involved. Financing models... Meteor Model
