스위스의 조종사 2명이 경량항공기 CTLS 2대를 타고 4월말에 스위스를 출발해서, 51일만인 지난 6월 19일에 출발지로 복귀했습니다. 이들의 비행경로는 아래 그림과 같으며, 총 비행거리는 45,295 km 입니다.


Congratulations! 
Azimut 270 Team successfully finished their Round The World Tour.

Two pilots of twin Flight Design CTs are back home in Sion Switzerland! One around-the-world flight is significant. A pair of Light-Sport Aircraft doing the feat is even more impressive. Their several goals were to celebrate 100 years of aviation in the European country known for its natural beauty and for being bankers to the world.
Yannick Bovier, 37, and Francisco Agullo, 41, departed their home base on the last day of April. After 51 days, the pair returned safely on Saturday, June 19 after crossing two oceans, confronting sluggish bureaucrats for overfly permission, battling fatigue and loneliness, performing routine maintenance that comes with so many hours logged, plus having to watch what foods they consumed (on-board bathrooms have yet to be installed in the first Light-Sport Aircraft). A full listing of their statistics from this incredible voyage around Earth will follow.
Starting on April 30, the duo leaped the Atlantic to Brazil by May 8 and then crossed the Caribbean to Miami, Florida, USA by May 13. After crossing the States, Bovier and Agullo made two very long flights to cross the Pacific on June 3. The pair wrote, “[We flew over] 15,877 kilometers (about 10,000 miles) of water... in 76 hours.” The arduous passage across the planet’s largest ocean brought several interesting experiences, including landing on an atoll on the Pacific Marshall Island of Majuro.
The ocean crossings were noteworthy but obtaining permission to overfly some middle eastern countries brought difficulties of another sort. Fortunately Bovier and Agullo are airline pilots and had familiarity in dealing with aviation authorities in many countries. They also were supported by teams at home that helped with permits and logistical efforts, as well as weather reports.
“The story of these two pilots as reported in their log is a fascinating read,” reported Flight Design USA president Tom Peghiny. The Swiss team calls their adventure Azimut 270 and they kept their many followers updated with an online “logbook” that most pilots will enjoy reading (http://www.azimut270.ch/en/logbook.html).
The twin CT aircraft were modified to carry 120 gallons of fuel for their 17-hour flight legs over water (Online trip map: http://www.azimut270.ch/en/position.html). A factory-stock CTLS carries 35 gallons of auto gas or 100LL giving it a range of more than 800 nautical miles.

The Flight Design Team wishes you more great flights and fun with your CTLS airplanes.
