Bory   12.01.2012  12:14:22 GMT
Ni mi jasno, a ne gre v tank 100 litrov goriva? To je za 6 ur letenja... 1500km. ?? Čez Atantik pa je 3500 najmanj?? Srečno Matevž!
 
marjan.bauer@finance.si   12.01.2012  12:08:15 GMT
Matevž, vidim, da si že čez polovico. Bravo!
 
marko sabothy,natalija polenec   12.01.2012  12:03:44 GMT
Samo se 3H pa vidiš obalo,ne morem od rač..Verjetno boš prej na cilju, kot si planiral. In zadovoljivo rezervo goriva.Tole je podvig.Danes sledim do Natala. Srecno do etapnega cilja.

Hej, prihaja ekvator.
 
Poul Brandrup   12.01.2012  11:19:30 GMT
Fascinating. I agree a timeline would be helpful, but anyhow thanks for allowing us to follow this adventure minute by minute. Continued safe flight .....
 
Fortuna   12.01.2012  11:16:26 GMT
have a good journey and on arrival in Brazil, take a good shot of "caipirinha".
 
Ljubljančan   12.01.2012  10:43:28 GMT
Ali je kdo našel kakšno live kamero letališča Natal?
 
lojze   12.01.2012  10:36:54 GMT
Ta kurs mi je že bolj všeč. Vso srečo na vaji v modrem.
 
marko sabothy,natalija polenec   12.01.2012  10:24:31 GMT
da bi tale komponenta vetra od zadaj držala vecino precenja, pasati po meteo naj bi bili ugodni vecino tega dela atlantika.skoraj 300 na uro. Naj gre naprej tako dobro ,srecno.

Miloš   12.01.2012  10:12:39 GMT
Pozdravljeni, zanima me, ali boste leteli preko Atlantika v enem kosu oz. kolikšen je max. doseg. Pa še, s čim si pomagate proti utrujenosti in zaspanosti. Ima vaše letalo kak avtopilot in radar ? Želim vam miren polet in mirne vremenske pogoje. Lep pozdrav, Miloš Večaj
 
Angus   12.01.2012  10:10:28 GMT
I wish the tracking would also show total flight time since takeoff
 
Michael   12.01.2012  10:01:05 GMT
At 9.50 UTC he has changed direction more to the west, picked up a little tail wind also.
 
Domen Grauf   12.01.2012  09:56:14 GMT
Dear Augusto, thank you for your help! I'm sorry again to disturb you in the middle of the night. Best regards, domen
 
TineT   12.01.2012  09:50:15 GMT
The current heading is a result of weather avoidance. Matevz is flying through the equatorial convergence zone: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intertropical_Convergence_Zone. Forecast winds were in the order of 10-15 kts tailwind component. // Smer leta je posledica izogibanja vremenskim motnjam. Matevž leti skozi ekvatorialno vremensko zono: http://www.4ocean.si/transat/?p=48
 
Michael   12.01.2012  09:46:41 GMT
http://www.stormsurf.com/page2/links/currsatl.html I see now there is an image showing weather and he is heading south to get around the weather. Also should get a good tail wind in the last few hours.
 
Mat   12.01.2012  09:44:19 GMT
Best of luck for this crossing and my the winds be with you.
 
Jaka   12.01.2012  09:41:02 GMT
Srečno pot!
 
Michael   12.01.2012  09:19:38 GMT
Seems to be averaging just under 150 knots TAS. Looks to be heading much further south than a straight line but he might be flying a great circle route or similar looking for better winds ?
 
BORIS IVANOVSKI   12.01.2012  09:09:49 GMT
All the best Slovenian pilot
 
Alyssa Svetlic   12.01.2012  09:07:01 GMT
Že vidim, da bom morala tudi danes prečepeti celi dan pred računalnikom. Srečo Matevž, znanja maš itak dovolj. Pa kakšno fotko gor obesi !
 
vadya   12.01.2012  08:32:04 GMT
GOOD LUCK
 
Jože   12.01.2012  08:29:43 GMT
195 stopinj (true); ali ni Natal malce bolj desno (čeprav je zemlja okrogla)?
 
Augusto Barrozo   12.01.2012  08:26:35 GMT
Dear Matevz and Domen, Eventually the AIS room phone number in Natal is 84/30871440 and they already have the information of that flight from Dakar. No problem there, just arrive!... Let me know please if you have any additional need during the flight.
 
kotzi   12.01.2012  08:24:33 GMT
Ali TineT lahko pojasni visualizacijo poleta na tiny.cc.......Matevžu pa "mirno morje" in all the best!!
 
Ljubljančan   12.01.2012  08:05:17 GMT
Ej, to je pa tako napeto...
 
Rok   12.01.2012  07:58:54 GMT
Dober veter, dober rotax in kanček sreče, v glavi imaš pa že tako vse "zrihtano"!
 
Jeff de Brugge   12.01.2012  07:49:16 GMT
May the force be with you Matevz
 
Domen Grauf   12.01.2012  06:44:52 GMT
Za vsakega pilota, letalca je bil in se vedno je poseben izziv, kako preleteti Atlantik z manjšim letalom. Predvsem zaradi vremena in velike razdalje, ki jo je potrebno premagati , pri čemer skoraj da ni alternativnih točk, kjer bi lahko pristali. Atlantski ocean je tako predstavljal oviro za letalske pionirje v 19. in začetku 20. stoletja. Prva letala niso imela dovolj zanesljivih motorjev in moči, ter rešitev za shranjevanje potrebne količine goriva. Poleg tega, so imeli težave z navigacijo, kajti morje se razteza tisoče kilometrov daleč. Od sredine 20. Stoletja dalje, so se čezatlantski leti začeli odvijati rutinsko predvsem za komercialne, vojaške, diplomatske, in druge namene. Preleti v majhnih letalih še vedno predstavljajo tehnološke izzive za »čezatlantske letalce« Matevžu je podjetje Pipistrel, z vsemi strokovnjaki izdelalo vrhunsko letalo, ki zmore tovrstne podvige.
 
Domen Grauf   12.01.2012  06:44:35 GMT
Flight over the Atlantic presented challenges for aviators due to weather and the huge distances involved coupled with the lack of stopping points. The Atlantic Ocean stood as a significant obstacle to the aviation pioneers of the 19th and early 20th Centuries. The first aircraft engines did not have sufficient reliability necessary for the crossing, nor sufficient power to lift the required fuel. Additionally, there are difficulties navigating over featureless expanses of water for thousands of miles, and the weather. Since the middle of the 20th century, however, transatlantic flight has been routine and common, for commercial, military, diplomatic, and other purposes. Experimental flights (in small aircraft, etc.) still present technological challenges for transatlantic fliers.

Srečno in motorček naj prede, prede...
 
G   12.01.2012  06:11:02 GMT
Veter v hrbet in naj Rotax dobro brni!
 
9A- UZZ   12.01.2012  05:48:37 GMT
Sretno Matevž!!! Uz tebe smo!!!!
 
Domen Grauf   12.01.2012  05:35:58 GMT
He is back in the air, Best of luck also from me ;)
 
Domen Grauf   12.01.2012  05:34:16 GMT
The line-up and take-off instructions from the tower controller are expected in next minutes.
 
TineT   12.01.2012  05:32:06 GMT
Srečno, Matevž!!! Za tiste, ki bi želeli vizualizacijo današnjega poleta (približno): http://tiny.cc/qhwxv // Best of luck, Matevž!!! Today's flight visualisation (approx.): http://tiny.cc/qhwxv
 
Domen Grauf   12.01.2012  05:30:11 GMT
Good morning, Matevz is stil on the ground, moving via taxiways to the line-up position. Taxiways are areas used by the aircraft to get to and from the ramp and the runway.
 
Michael   12.01.2012  03:08:12 GMT
this is really exciting, it is just after 3 AM in Dakar and I am looking at the spider tracks map waiting for some movement in the aircraft in the next few hours. I am going to be awake all night watching the aircraft cross the Atlantic ! it's almost like being there ! if only we had a dashboard camera! Good luck Matevz !
 
flying cat   12.01.2012  00:09:20 GMT
thanks Domen Grauf for the detailed answer. But know I'm aphasiac ;-) 150l in each wing, I only have 60l/wing :-( Good luck Matevz, which you clear sky and a good tailwind
 
S5-Ivan   12.01.2012  00:08:17 GMT
Srecno na poti cez ocean, da bi motor normalno brnel! Se vidimo v Barilochah, ce bom takrat tam...
 
Augusto Barrozo   11.01.2012  23:44:46 GMT
Dear Matevz, Wish you a nice flight and a happy landing in NATAL-Brazil. I will wait for you there.
 
Petra   11.01.2012  23:04:15 GMT
Srečno, Matevž. V mislih letimo s Tabo in verjamemo v tvoje izkušnje, izvrstno pripravljenost kot tudi na dobre vile, ki te bodo zagotovo spremljale. Zaupaj!
 
Domen Grauf   11.01.2012  22:18:12 GMT
Matevž se bo oglasil na forumu in napisal občutke v prvi osebi. Žal trenutno nima dobre internetne povezave,kar je glavni razlog zatišja. Druga stvar so priprave na let, ki mu vzamejo precej časa. (vreme, dovoljenja, kontrole,...)
 
Ljubljančan   11.01.2012  22:08:50 GMT
Vso srečo pri velikem skoku. Pa veseli bi bili, če se nam Matevž tule "oglasi" še v prvi osebi.
 
Domen Grauf   11.01.2012  22:07:53 GMT
Hello flying cat, Pipistrel designed special airplane for Matevz flight. The airplane has a novel designed fuel tanks inside the wing(s) associated with a central tank that increases the total capacity of fuel by 50 liters. Central tank prevents to lose fuel during the flight. Return fuel line from all tanks is going into central tank and this hose is used also for fuel transfer from wing to fuselage tank. Total capacity of fuel, which Matevz can take is 350 liters. Each wing can carry 150 liters of fuel.
 
gephest   11.01.2012  21:56:16 GMT
I wish you luck and Godspeed.
 
ADR NAV / Matjaž   11.01.2012  21:25:38 GMT
Smo steboj v mislih, večkrat na dan.....
 
Moon   11.01.2012  21:19:36 GMT
Želim Vam veter v hrbet in sonce v obraz, SREČNO! Jure
 
flying cat   11.01.2012  21:07:43 GMT
Hi Domen Grauf, whate is the total fuel capacity Matevz can take with him. You are saying he will take 300l to cross the Atlantic. Where is it stored? The original capacity is 100l plus the extra wing tanks which might hold another 120 – 150l. In this case there are still 50l missing. Does he use a ferry tank? Anyway, it’s a great challenge and I hope Matevz will have a safe landing back in Slovenia.
 
IZTOK IZ SEŽANE   11.01.2012  21:05:14 GMT
ŽELIM VAM SAMO ZDRAVJA IN DOBRIH VREMENSKIH POGOJEV ZA VAŠ LET VERJETNO TUDI NEKAJ SREČE,OSTALO JE ZA VAS LE RUTINA !! BRAVO!!!!!!
