Belarusian pilots on round-the-world trip set non-stop flight personal record

28.08.2018

Belarusian pilots who set out on a round-the-world trip set a personal record for a non-stop flight on a single-engine aircraft, spending 7 hours and 24 minutes in the air and flying fifteen hundred kilometers. The crew had to spend some time in Kolyma as airports en route were closed during the weekend. To make up for the lost time, the crew skipped two landing points and departed from Magadan to Anadyr directly. The pilots have already covered about 8 thousand kilometers, this is one third of the total distance. When flying into Chukotka, the aircraft was exposed to icing, which could lead to engine shutdown, but the crew coped with the situation. The travelers have already left behind the capital of the Baikal-Amur Mainline, the city of Tynda.
