Two pilots who have built their friendship around their love for general aviation are launching their own adventures together. Adrian Eichhorn’s North Pole rendezvous and Shinji Maeda’s trek around the globe will begin in Maryland before they part ways over Norway. Here we will follow the two individual flights of these veteran and adventurous pilots.
Adrian’s North Pole fly over is a challenge that brings a chance to solve new problems, see new places, and make new friends. Each pilot has a different history of flying, different general aviation experiences, and different reasons for why a trip like this is important to themselves and to the aviation community. Read more about the route, Adrian’s plane and the pilots and crew below.
Lightspeed has the honor of being able to be in contact with Adrian during his flight. Visit this page during the flight, where we will be posting updates about his journey!
