Mobile Support

Having returned from Sweden, I’m leading the charge on trying to secure us (British Antarctic Microlight Expedition – www.flyingforfreedom.org) two winterised and Antarctic prepared 4×4 vehicles… There’s no way my 1952 80inch Series 1 Land Rover will make it across the continent, at least not without a massive and costly overhaul.

Providing our mobile ground support team with two vehicles, prepared for the extremely harsh environment Antarctica offers, provides a sponsor with a unique opportunity to be involved in this very special British expedition.

If you are in a position to support us, please contact me. If you know someone you think may be able to support us, even in some small way, please contact me. We need your help to ensure the success of the expedition, enabling our wounded pilots to complete their mission safely.

Flying For Freedom

In the latter part of this month, the British Antarctic Microlight Expedition will conduct cold weather testing training in Northern Sweden. We expect the conditions in N. Sweden to be harsh and brutal. The pilots (some of whom are qualified and some whom are under training – both injured service personnel and support elements) will have their first taste of take off and landing microlights on snow and ice.
www.fly2pole.com gives more information on who we are and what we’re doing.
The microlight in the image, shows the version we shall be taking to the South Pole. We’re looking for you to support us in this Guinness World Record setting British Expedition.
