A major problem on this round-trip is crossing the Atlantic from Africa to South America during an approx. 13-hour flight. As a result,
the Cessna has been equipped with an extra tank for 400 litres of aviation fuel. Permission had to be sought again from EASA
(the European Aviation Safety Agency) and the LBA (Federal Aviation Office).
As specified by Brazilian laws, a portable high frequency radio device had to be professionally retrofitted.
An iPad with the most important manuals for the plane and equipment, for approach charts and other data was prepared.
Flight plans, entry-, overflight- and landing-permits, as well as visas had to be applied for. At each airport, handling agents
welcome the crew from Hanover. They know all about the special regulations in the airports in each destination.
They guide their guests through the jungle of different formalities.
