I want one of these ... pretty impressive stats he quotes ;).


Q. Can you tell us about the plane in which you are flying?


A. The aircraft is made of glass fibre composite. It is 290 kilograms of unladen weight and 500 kilograms with us and our belongings. It is a small single engine, ROTAX912, that has a 100 HP and that can fly at a speed of 140 knots or 259 kmph. It can gain an altitude of 140000 feet but we will fly between 5000 ft and 10000ft. It has good navigation equipment on board, GPS and satellite phones as well.
