General remarks about your flight:
Lifetime ambition with all the organising still a great achievement and even though last minute hiccup with my original chosen co-pilot unable to commit I had to seek an alternative last minute turbine experienced pilot to comply with insurance.


Advice to other pilots:
Ensure all handling charges are agreed in advance of trip, due to outrageous charges incurred in Japan (Okinawa/Osaka/Chitose) over $10,000 and Russia (Petropavlovsk) €2200 also Manado (Indonesia) Landing/Handling fee $600
