General remarks about your flight:
An extraordinary experience, especially the Antarctica flight. After completing a 2015 eastbound RTW flight, much of this flight was familiar except for Antarctica which is truly an otherworldly experience.


Advice to other pilots:
Flying to Antarctica requires a deep obsession and a lot of money (unless you can tanker enough fuel to avoid needing to refuel in Antartica) and time. We needed the permission of five different governmental agencies (three US, two Chile) which required many months of work and many pages of documentation.
