General remarks about your flight:

Advice to other pilots:
: Itís a once in a life time adventure. For me it was more than just a personal achievement. It was about inspiring the youth of my country to embrace aviation as a very rewarding way of life. Advice to other pilots: Please be well prepared. Use a machine you can trust and do a lot of reading. Find out as much as you can about the airports you are going to fly into. Look for approach videos on YouTube to familiarize yourself with the terrain. Check your passport and visa validities especially if an outside company is doing all your flight clearances because most of these flight plans are around Zulu time and when flying around the world you can lose track of time. I got detained at the Russian airport for 32 hours because I arrived a few hours after mid night and the date had changed hence my visa arrival date had passed. It ended up becoming international news and required my country to make diplomatic efforts to get me permission to continue my journey. Had my government not interfered my circumnavigation would have ended in Russia incomplete. Also know that most of these far east Russian airports donít have the most understanding officials probably because of language barriers or just the way culture is in that part of the world. Having said that Russia is beautiful. Once you survive the beauracrcy the people of Russia are very warm and it is a very special place.
