Van's RV-8 Wheel/Skis to fly across Antarctica
This is Michel Gordillo's THIRD round-the-world flight and he will be studying the effects of black carbon particles that are affecting our atmosphere. His departure will be in October.
Patrick Gilligan in support to Miguel's efforts, will be donating time to build a pair of wheel/skis. Such equipment is required on this leg over Antarctica. Although these skis where designed for safety in mind, Patrick has been flying his RV8 onto unprepared snow covered fields, lakes and rivers since 2012 with great success.
