General remarks about your flight:
'The Arctic requires the attention of the global community' - V. Tokarev


Advice to other pilots:
(1)The best and only possible time for such a route is to go to the West from June 15 to August 15, as far as all aerodromes operate according to the rules and, despite 24 daytime, their mode is usually from 08.00 to 18.00 local time. Arrival (departure) outside the rules is possible, but creates additional difficulties and cash costs.

(2)The main problem in this route is the logistics of the fuel, the permits for overflight, visa support.
And of course the weather. The weather in the Arctic is not predictable for the long term. We used Windy ‑ the most accurate forecast for 12 hours, the actual one was taken from Fore Flight, the review was taken from MeteoEarth. But we must bear in mind that in the Russian Arctic and in the Canadian Arctic it is not always possible to have access to good Internet.

(3)Have an emergency supply of foodstuffs with high energy value.
