Australia & New Zealand

Dear friends, We have decided to continue our trip across Australia and on to New Zealand. Eric Dabas, professional pilot and Flight instructor, is going to take over and fly our specially adapted CTLS. You can check out Eric’s biography. Our new schedule is at the bottom of our Itinerary page.

If we are to continue on our journey after New Zealand, we will need to find a new main partner. Please spread this news.

Main goal achieved

Getting as far as Perth was one of our principle goals since the outset in this project. We have now arrived. I would like to congratulate Paolo warmly for having taken on the challenge of taking the baton over from Mike and Guillaume in extremely difficult circumstances, and I would especially like to thank Paolo’s wife Sonja for accepting his decision and giving him her support. Many thanks also to Joseph, the pilot of the support airplane, for having reorganized his affairs to replace Laurent, and for getting the whole team here safely. A special thank you to all the lions clubs on our way for their incredible support and kindness. Many thanks to Luc et Wim, our weathermen, for their great help. Thanks also to all of you for having supported us when we took our decision to continue. We will now shortly decide on what our next steps will be.
