Tomorrow I launch on my second around the world flight in my trusty Cirrus SR22, N140BV. This time eastbound and crossing almost all of Russia. Actually, 6,550 kt miles of Russia. The purpose of the flight is to meet, document, and photograph Russian General Aviation Pilots and Their Planes. Believe it or not, Russian General Aviation is alive and well with lots of interesting pilots and planes. Most of the airports that I am stopping at in Russia are general aviation airports. You can follow the flight and see my photos and posts on the Facebook page: Cirrus World Tour and the website: forgottencoastflyers.com. The first stop is Cumberland, WI where Jim Barker at Aviation Resources has graciously agreed to address a couple of aggravating squawks. For you Cirrus drivers out there, I do have a 50 gallon Turtle Pack Fuel Tank in the back seat allowing for the 1,200-mile legs.
