Sky Polaris: A Record-Breaking Global Flight by Miguel Angel Gordillo, Peter Schneider, and Rita Schneider
Sky Polaris: A Record-Breaking Global Flight is written by Miguel Angel Gordillo, Peter Schneider, and Rita Schneider. Miguel Angel Gordillo is the first man who circumnavigated the earth over both poles in a homebuilt aircraft under 1750 kg. In 2016, he covered 41,000 nm in two legs in the shape of an eight at extreme flight conditions over desert, jungle, mountains, ocean, and ice. This earned him the world record of the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI).
The scientific, aeronautical and personal challenges, experiences, and encounters on his flight over both poles provided the extraordinary material for this book to document the uniqueness of his world record in words and pictures.
