... stands for the plan to make a Solo Maiden Flight with a Microlight Aircraft from Germany to Nerlerit Inaat (Constable Pynt), close to the city of Ittoqqortoormiit (Scoresbysund) on the East Coast of Greenland. It will happen in the arctic summer months of 2017. So 12 months have left for planning, training and preparation.
In comparison to set a new highspeed record, a Maiden Flight will be linked to the name of the pilot and his aircraft forever. A good reason in my opinion, to make this project happen.
Why Greenland? Greenland, the largest island of the world, perpetual ice, igloos, inuit, polar bears, midsummer nights, polar lights. Greenland is linked so closely to our weather phenomenons, the Global Warming can be witnessed there, each time an Iceberg is breaking from the shelf, and traveling over the North Atlantic Sea.
There are so many good reasons the see this extreme region. Why not in a combination with this once-in-a-lifetime adventure?
Let me invite you to come along with me over the next months, to watch the efforts and activities for the preparation of the "NANUQ 2017" Project.
You will learn about me, the aircraft, the planned routing, my preparations, my trainings and the negotiations with supporters and sponsors. Get a close view on the passion of flying a Microlight Aircraft.
Next blog will introduce the To-Do-List for the next 12 months.
Make it your project, too!
