General remarks about your flight:
The trip was exciting and challenging, with no major mishaps, but arranging basic travel logistics (hotels, transport to and from, tours and excursions, etc.) which I did myself can be a lot of work. By comparison, the flight arrangements were generally straightforward with the help of Skyplan for permits and arranging handlers in the more difficult places.


Advice to other pilots:
: Check and reserve avgas ahead of time for Pacific islands and places like India. Stay away from large international airports which are expensive and generally don’t welcome light aircraft. Instead, go to medium/small size airport towns with avgas. For an RTW trip like mine, budget a total of approximately US$40,000 (half of which is fuel) and 2-3 months. Take US$ cash (newer currency) needed to buy avgas in barrels in many places. A notebook computer with WiFi (or at least an iPAD) is essential and line up your list of weather websites beforehand. Obtaining weather from local Met offices is not better than you can find yourself on the internet. In planning your route, contact ferry pilots, local pilots and others who have flown your basic route – they will have valuable knowledge about local conditions and restrictions, where to go and what to avoid.
