Matevž, čestitamo za to etapo. Peter
 
Petra Draskovic   14.01.2012  19:54:39 GMT
Once again, congratulations to Matevž! BRAVO! After finishing 4th stage, he is starting tomorrow morning at 9. 00 UTC from Cayenne to PuertoRico. No day off at the moment, but at least some rest of course! Tomorrow is another long flying day! But soon the service is also sheduled!
 
Petra Draskovic   14.01.2012  19:50:23 GMT
še enkrat, Bravo, Matevž! Po uspešno zaključeni 4. etapi, se jutri zjutraj ob 9:00 UTC, Matevž odpravlja naprej iz Cayenne v PuertoRico. Zaenkrat počitka, tistega daljšega še ne bo. Jutri je spet dolga etapa. Kmalu pa pride na vrsto tudi servis.
 
Jože   14.01.2012  19:16:26 GMT
Bravo. Ali Matevž planira tudi kakšna dva tri dni počitka? Najprej, da se odpočije, nato da malo pregledajo letalo, nato pa da bi imel malo časa, da tudi nas razveseli z vtisi, fotografijami, plani.
 
S5-PIR   14.01.2012  19:13:36 GMT
Lahko rečem le še BRAVO. Vidi se ti, da si na letalskem travniku "gor zrastel". Kar si si zamislil, to preprosto tudi nardiš. Just do it!!
 
KOTZI   14.01.2012  18:53:23 GMT

Uspesen pristanek in se en velik uspeh Matevz, ta 4 etapa je bila zelo dinamicna in CESTITKE ceprav mislim, da se ti je zadnjih 400km nekoliko mudilo ali ne
 
Ljubljančan   14.01.2012  18:21:31 GMT
Čestitam za uspešen prelet in pristanek.

Namaste, Mr.Matevž, from a Flight Information Services Air Traffic Controller from Bucharest, Romania! Enjoy your amazing adventure and Tashi Delek-May Good Fortune follow you!
 
AopaAZ   14.01.2012  17:24:35 GMT
Seveda ga. Petra, najprej varnost. Res modra odločitev, da se je izognil enkratni priložnosti. Matevž čestitke.
 
VMK   14.01.2012  17:22:37 GMT
Spremljamo vaš čudovit podvig in želimo vso srečo.
 
Poul Brandrup   14.01.2012  16:53:19 GMT
Thank you Petra for your comments. I assume you are Matevz's partner (or close family)? I certainly share the wishes of everyone and am ever so grateful for the opportunity to follow this great adventure. I do hope that Matevz takes the rest he needs .... As you say you really need to be able to perform at your peek under challenging circumstances. He has, however much more relevant experience than me, so I am sure he knows what he is doing. Once again my very best wishes and thanks for keeping us updated.
 
S5-PIR   14.01.2012  16:49:47 GMT
Matevž pazi, na otoku Kourou Francozi iz svojga departmaja z raketami streljajo.
 
Lincoln BH - Brasil   14.01.2012  16:49:35 GMT
Good luck, man!!!
 
Petra Draskovic   14.01.2012  16:46:54 GMT
Matevž se naglo približuje Francoski Gvajani!! Med tem smo za vas pripravili nekaj novih fantastičnih fotografij iz prvega dela etape. /// Matevž is aproaching fast to French Guiana! While waiting have a look at some amazing photographs we have uploaded from the first stage Green Light World Flight!
 
Denis   14.01.2012  16:09:46 GMT
Around 50 miles of stormy weather on Google Earth. And he is on 3/4 of this.
 
EGON VENEZUELA   14.01.2012  15:58:12 GMT
Se pridruzujem vsem za cestitke in za neverjetni tempo poleta, za vijuganje in spuscanje na nizje visine (zaradi fotografiranja, menim) in sedaj na vecje visine zaradi tropske fronte. Zares neverjetno, CESTITKE in srecno do konca etape.
 
Petra Draskovic   14.01.2012  15:51:48 GMT
AopaAZ: Že, že, vendar je pomembeje da varno nadaljuje, kajne? Upajmo le, da ni prehuda. Hvala za spremljanje!
 
AopaAZ   14.01.2012  15:42:10 GMT
Škoda, da zaradi nevihte ne gre čez ustje Amazonke. Lepe slike bi bile. Srečno pot še naprej.
 
Petra Draskovic   14.01.2012  15:29:10 GMT
France Korošec and others: Thank you also for kind and good wishes and all your prayers. I am sure Someone hears them and safely guerd Matevz over turbulant and shaky sky. I am sure Matevz will post more words once he gets the time and arrange all the necessary things. Please try to understand that once arriving at the airport, most important first is to find fuel and get ready the plane to be in the proper shape. Also rest is much important due to all these long flying. But as he already wrote he is very happy about all your interest! we will keep you up to date.
 
Petra Draskovic   14.01.2012  15:22:57 GMT
Poul Brandrup: Thank you for good words, very true. It is amazing, and as you said remarkable achievment to be in the air for 11 h 30 min. Fully concentrated and careful at the same time! It is extremly demanding. Be sure, Matevz will be careful regarding flying. Today and two more days will be all long and very demanding. Let's all believe all is going to be fine! Your constant support and encourgment is very much appreciated! Thank you all!
 
Petra Draskovic   14.01.2012  15:15:41 GMT
Krasno napreduje Matevž! Izjemen podvig!!! Bravo! In Srečno še naprej!

God protect You,Mr.Matevž! Fantastic and great; unbeleivable job yo're doing.Even flying in a big Boeings and Airbuses over Atlantic is often turbulent, shaky and scary.I can't imagine how do you feel and survive in a thinny-magic Virus. I've been standing beside it at Ljubljana airport when you've been leaving the homeland asking myself many questions.family is following your.Our family is hungry for news from you every day.We're praying for your safe and smooth flying around our planet.Please,when finding time, describe a bit how it was while flying over the Atlantic,please.Let's Angel Varuh lead and protect you during your amazing challenge!Thank you that we can be with you. Stay well, enjoy and be well! Lep pozdrav in srečno!

Ali je Matevž že odletel proti FG? Kaj je s spidertrackom?
 
Domen Grauf   14.01.2012  08:32:52 GMT
Due to bureaucratic requirements, the intended take-off is delayed for two hours. Expected take-off at 09:40 UTC. / Zaradi birokratskih ovir, je vzlet prestavljen in bo predvidoma vzletel ob 09:40 UTC. Bodite z nami, ko se zacne 4. etapa.
 
Poul Brandrup   14.01.2012  08:01:16 GMT
Thank you very much for this detailed account of your flight from Dakar to Natal. You write almost ecstatic. i can imagine it must have been that. 11.33H is remarkable at average 154-155 knots. Must be some kind of record in itself! I understand that you are eager to get on with the trip, but do prioritize to be fully rested before continuing. You may very well feel tired today although you did feel fine yesterday. Aftereffects of your adventure and the adrenalin rush. Hopefully you will have less problems finding good quality fuel in Rio Grande do Norte than you had in Senegal. Having lived in Africa for a number of years I know that fuel of dubious quality is what is most on offer. Once again many thanks for your report and my very best wishes for the upcoming leg.
 
Damjan Bevk   14.01.2012  07:49:16 GMT
Želim ti uspešno in varno letenje še naprej!
 
Jože Senegačnik   13.01.2012  23:49:50 GMT
Bravo Matevž and Pipistrel team. Crossing Atlantic is not like eating a piece of cake. I wish you good tail winds and clear skies.
 
Maurizio   13.01.2012  23:29:39 GMT
I fly the Virus SW tailw. too, it's the best airplane we can fly, have a nice trip. Ciao, Mauri.
 
wojciech mirski   13.01.2012  21:47:19 GMT
Congratulations for Atlantic ! I know countries you are going to overfly,but what are precise airports you land ? I know many people on your way that could help with fuel,accomodation,customs etc.Let me know if you like the idea. Strong tailwinds ! Wojciech M.

EGON VENEZUELA,se strinjam s tabo. Za podporo naši marljivi zemeljski,ekipi mal zgodovinskih dejstev in zapisov. Ko je Krištof Kolumb pred odhodom v Indijo v všpanski luki stopil na "jedrenjačo" Santa Mario (v desni roki je imel Jonathan jabko, to smo že rekli)in izrekel zgodovinske besede svoji posadki: Pjebi,dost je blo! GREMO!! Je bil od svojega prvega častnika palube takoj vprašan, KAM? Krištof dvakrat globoko vgrizne v jabko, vzdihne, dvigne desno roko v smeri W, v višini horizonta čez ocean in reče: Fantje včeraj na brifingu sem vam vse točno razložu:" REKLI SMO TJALE!!" No in ekipi je blo šest mescev vse jasn in tud vprašu ni nobeden nič več. A sti vidu kaj pomeni seznanit zainteresirane s plani za naprej?

Lepi pozdravi iz Slovenije natančneje iz Tuhinjske doline! Pa kdaj nas preletite prosim! :D
 
Domen Grauf   13.01.2012  19:46:51 GMT
After a day of rest – time for new ventures Tomorrow begins a new stage of flying around the world – 4th in turn. Matevz will again fly by land, but despite this fact the flight will not be easy. He will fly along the east coast to French Guiana, stormy weather is expected and 10 hours of continuous flight, because of that exceptional durability and excellent mental preparation is needed. Departure from the airport Natal (Brazil) in the morning at 07:30 UTC in a nortwesterly direction towards the city of Cayenne (French Guiana). Landing is scheduled at 17:25 UTC at Rochambeau airport (ICAO code »SOCA«). The planned route is 2345 km long, which requires 190 gallons of fuel and reserve. Folow 4th stage of the flight around the world!
 
Domen Grauf   13.01.2012  19:46:03 GMT
Po dnevu počitka je čas za nove podvige Jutri se začne nova etapa letenja okoli sveta, 4. po vrsti. Kljub temu, da bo Matevž tokrat letel po kopnem, letenje še zdaleč ne bo enostavno. Letel bo vzdolž vzhodne obale proti Francoski Gvajani, ker ga čaka nevihtno vreme in neprekinjenih 10 ur letenja je ponovno potrebna izjemna vzdržljivost in odlična psihična priprava. Vzletel bo z letališča Natal (Brazilija) v jutranjih urah ob 07.30 UTC, pot bo nadaljeval v severozahodni smeri proti mestu Cayenne (Francoska Gvajana), pristanek je predviden ob 17:25 UTC na letališču Rochambeau (ICAO koda »SOCA«). Načrtovana pot je dolga 2345 km, za katero potrebuje 190 litrov goriva in rezervo. Spremljajte 4. etapo letenja okoli sveta!
 
EGON VENEZUELA   13.01.2012  19:30:03 GMT
Zemljski ekipi; Ali lahko objavite bolj natancen zemljevid predvidenih rut z kraji odhodov in pristankov, da bomo vedeli od kod do kam bo letel v nadaljevanju potovanja. V naprej se vam zahvaljujem

Fred Rampa   13.01.2012  15:29:21 GMT
Hi Matevz, I am from the Rampa Foundation from Natal (www.fundacaorampa.com.br) and we would like to meet you. My number is 8714-2868. We want to film your departure to FG. We can meet at your hotel today to talk to you. We are dedicated to Aviation History and you sure made history!
 
Matevž Lenarčič   13.01.2012  14:58:06 GMT
Hi to everybody! It is extremely important to me looking at this forum and all your positive thoughts. The flight itself was very rewarding and with all of your support almost ecstatic. The day before departure I couldn't find good fuel. Finally I bought it in town –200 litres of 92 oct unleaded (Rotax normally needs 95 oct). But later Zak from Aerclub arrange some 180 l of Avgas, what for sure made my overwater flight less stressful. Thanks to dr. Mirski (earthrounder as well) from Switzerland for good words to president of the club. Refueling is quite complicated as the wings need to be balanced all the time and this opeartion occupied me the whole afternoon till late evening. Thanks to all guys from aeroclub. I planned to start very early to cross bad weather band as early as possible. So I started 2 hours before sunrise , very heavy at 27 OAT. I had to follow IFR procedure as night VFR is not allowed. I was climbing very slowly, because the engine was overheating, but after loooong dark and stressful climb I finally reached required FL 060. CHTs went back to normal. Dakar control required HF contact but I could' deploy HF trailing antenna so they wanted me to turn back. Landing this heavy loaded in the dark was the last thing I thought about so called them via Iridium, just to make position report and Operation normal. Finally they accepted this kind of communication which is by the way much more reliable but sadly not according to the rules. Anyway I climbed to FL105, heading almost straight south to cross bad weather as far East as possible and catched easterly trade winds. The weather was not very difficult, some minor showers and slaloming between CBS. I was lucky. Heading west direct Natal was fast with average 15-20 kts tail wind. In Natal the wind was of 14 kts from 210, so went down ILS rwy 36 through act clouds. Meeting with Augusto Barroso from Rio, Slovenian ambassador Mrs Milena Smit, Tine Motoh from Slovenian company Keter and some journalists made it eaier my going through the custom. So statistic show extremely successful flight of 1746 NM - 3234 km in only 11.33 hours with 17,9 consumption, with highest ground speed of 168 kts. Tomorrow heading north along the Brazilian coast to Cayenne in FG.
 
Primož   13.01.2012  13:50:26 GMT
Zdaj sem bolje pogledal zemljevid sveta in videl, da ne boš letel čez Rusijo in Sibirijo. Ja ja, problemi so ,bili hudi takrat, ampak fotke so bile pa super!
 
Carlos Costa   13.01.2012  13:18:47 GMT
Congratulations are in order! Fantastic flight!
