uniqueness lies in the fact that this is a flight ever made for this type of aircraft,
which has a very low cruising speed 180/200 km/h, and a limited autonomy.

Current situation:-we pretty much got all the overflight permissions by countries concerned;
-We are supported by FlySynthesis in the setting up of the Texan TOP Class 100
-We are working on the logistics aspect of the enterprise with the preparation of two means employed, which are our property, and all you need to accomplish the feat.
-The means will be equipped with two/three cameras each, to use the various moments of the enterprise.
-We've already got the support of some major sponsors;
-We developed graphics for brochures, posters, flyers, etc.
-We have an internet site (www.ridingtheskies.com) where, in real time, you can follow the route of aircraft, and where every night we will post photos and log-book-we're entertaining contacts (some already well underway) with some of the most important broadcasters, and also all magazines. We are proud to announce that they have reached the following patrons:-we have obtained the patronage of the REGIONE VENETO-we got the patronage of the town of Cassola (VI);
-We got the patronage of the municipality of Bassano del Grappa (VI);

As you will see, organize an undertaking of this kind requires dedication and enormous efforts.
We have done the best that we have been possible but for the success of the mission, we also need your collaboration.
