MONOGRAPH - AROUND THE ONLY WORLD

Around the only World


A book about Matevz's first flight around the world was published in Russian language.


On his exciting journey that took him over Russia, Siberia, Canada, Greenland, Iceland and back home, he gets a taste of the primeval connection with the beautiful landscape, meets the natives and meditates on freedom and people’s responsibilities toward Earth. In addition to this travelogue in which the author describes the adventures and misadventurous of his heroic act, you can admire the breath-taking photographs from the flight in the photo monograph Okrog edinega sveta with comments in Russian language.

COLLECTED BLACK CARBON DATA
11.11.2012

Soot


Seven moths ago the photographer and biologist Matevz Lenarcic flew a "single-seat" airplane around the world. Between piloting the plane and collecting photographs for an upcoming book on water, Lenarcic has also collected data on black carbon, or soot, concentrations in the atmosphere. His 290-kilogram plane carries a much-lighter-than-normal Aethalometer, designed by aerosol scientist Grisa Mocnik of Aerosol in Ljubljana, Slovenia, that measures the optical absorption of the atmosphere and converts it to a rough estimate of soot concentration.

Aerosol scientists such as Ryan Spackman of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, Colorado, already use much more sensitive instruments mounted on Gulf Stream jets to collect black carbon data—but such flights are expensive for scientists. Small private aircraft could help fill in a lot of data gaps, particularly at low altitudes near urban areas where soot concentrations tend to be high enough for an Aethalometer to provide very good data, Spackman says. “The fi rst few kilometers [above ground level] are the most interesting.”

Kmetijstvo v puščavi v bližini mesta Sabha v Libiji


Z veseljem vam sporočamo, da je članek objavljen v National Geographic Slovenija prejel t. i. »best edit«, ki ga Darren Smith, urednik za oblikovanje in fotografijo, zadolžen za lokalne izdaje, podeljuje najboljšim lokalnim zgodbam, pripravljenim v skladu s standardi National Geographica.


http://www.nationalgeographic.si/index.php?t=reportaze&id=403


"The Best Edit winner this week is:

Slovenia, for a beautiful photo feature by Matevz Lenarcic, who flew solo around the world in a small, eco-friendly light (290-kilo) plane. This flight is as unique as it is extreme - before Lenarcic, nobody managed to fly around the world in an ultralight plane without a co-pilot and without any ground support. Between piloting the plane and shooting photographs Lenarcic has also collected data on black carbon, or soot, concentrations in the atmosphere (http://www.cgsplus.si/portals/0/WGF/wglfPage.htm). The photos are gorgeous aerials, showcasing places around the world, so the story would be relevant for any edition.

Congratulations to Slovenia,

Darren!"

Matevž Lenarčič

Končnost vsega in vsakogar je pripeljala tudi projekt GreenLight WorldFlight do srečnega zaključka. V dobrih treh mesecih je bilo življenje na 95.000 km dolgem poletu preko vseh celin in Mont Everesta resnično intenzivno. Svet je resnično lep, zaradi narave in ljudi ki tam živijo. Prostora, hrane in vode je za vse nas več kot dovolj. S poletom smo dokazali, da je sprememba miselnosti v smeri MAJHNO-LAHKO-ZELENO mogoča in nujno potrebna. Zahvaljujem se v prvi vrsti neverjetni ekipi GLWF, sponzorjem, ki so skupaj z nami začutili sporočilnost poleta in vsem podpornikom na dolgi poti, ki so nas dnevno reševali iz številnih zapletov.


Ivo Boscarol ter kolektiv Pipistrel

Izjemno ponosni smo, da vam lahko sporočimo, da je ekstremni pilot Matevž Lenarčič uspešno obletel svet s Pipistrelovim letalom Virus SW 914 Turbo in to na najzahtevnejši možen način! Matevž Lenarčič je s tem podvigom dokazal, da je Pipistrelovo letalo Virus SW 914 Turbo sposobno preleteti tako Atlantski in Indijski ocean kot tudi cel Pacifik, sposobno preleteti Mt. Everest in kljubovati ekstremno nizkim temperaturam na Antarktiki ter ekstremno visokim temperaturam in vlagi nad ekvatorjem. Bravo Matevž, vsi v Pipistrelu smo zelo ponosni nate in smo ti hvaležni!
Iskrene čestitke in še enkrat hvala!


 mag. Tomaž Berločnik, predsednik uprave Petrola

"V Matevža in njegovo ekipo smo brez kančka dvoma verjeli od samega začetka, prav tako kot je bilo nedvomno sodelovanje Petrola pri tem projektu. Presrečni smo, da smo bili del te širše ekipe in Matevžu poleg najkakovostnejšega goriva tudi dobro svetovali z napotki za oskrbo z gorivom na njegovi poti okoli sveta".


 mag. Maja Pak, direktorica Slovenske turistične organizacije

Projekt zelenega poleta okoli sveta je združil slovensko inovativnost in znanje z zavezo naše države k trajnostnemu razvoju. Zato za Slovensko turistično organizacijo ni bilo vprašanje, ali pristopiti k projektu ali ne, temveč le vprašanje, kako s projektom čim bolj odmevno v svet ponesti sporočilo o majhni in zeleni državi v srcu Evrope,  zavezani k trajnostnemu razvoju. Slovenija je z uresničitvijo pionirskega podviga Matevža Lenarčiča z majhnim, lahkim in trajnostnim letalom uglednega slovenskega proizvajalca Pipistrel naredila nov korak naprej k povečanju prepoznavnosti Slovenije, ki je lahko drugim državam vzor na področju ohranjanja in varovanja okolja.  Edinstveni polet Matevža Lenarčiča okoli sveta z minimalnim ogljičnim odtisom  je vzbudil veliko pozornost tujih medijih od Argentine do Maroka in  v svet ponesel tudi jedro sporočila nacionalne znamke I feel Slovenia.


Matjaž Kek, Urad vlade za informiranje

Urad vlade za komuniciranje je idejo Matevža Lenarčiča o tem, da bo z ultralahkim Pipistrelovim letalom preletel svet, podpiral že od vsega začetka. Skupaj s Slovensko turistično organizacijo smo promocijska gradiva, spletno mesto in letalo opremili z znakom I FEEL SLOVENIA. Z  Ministrstvom za zunanje zadeve in slovenskimi veleposlaništvi v tujini pa poskrbeli, da so bili o tem izjemnem projektu obveščeni svetovni in lokalni mediji na načrtovani poti letala. Vsi, ki so  sodelovali pri projektu, dokazujejo, da  ni vedno nujno  vztrajati na  starih tirnicah; da se da tudi drugače  zavzeto, drzno in realno ambiciozno– z manjšim ogljičnim odtisom, bolj zeleno in  bolj trajnostno. Želeli bi si, da bi Slovenija več posameznikov vzpodbudila k temu, da bi se ukvarjali s stvarmi, ki jih veselijo. Še posebej, če s tem zgodbe o mali, a trajnostno zeleni Sloveniji ponesejo v svet in  tako  prispevajo k dejanski uveljavitvi načel, ki so izražene v jedru znamke Slovenije-I feel Slovenia.


Zmago Skobir, predsednik uprave Aerodroma Ljubljana, d. d.

Ponosni smo, da smo lahko pospremili Matevža na pot in da smo prvi, ki smo ga po izjemnem podvigu lahko pozdravili doma. Kot sponzorji smo postali del velike zgodbe, ki je veliko večja od financnih sredstev, ki smo jih vanjo vložili. Matevža smo spremljali celo pot in zanj držali pesti v ključnih trenutkih. Gre za zgodovinski projekt, ki ga lahko uresničijo le največji in ki je znanje in hrabrost slovenskega letalstva ponesel zelo visoko in okoli celega sveta.

INCREDIBLE NUMBERS
21.04.2012

The collection of flight datas shows us incredible performance of the aircraft and the whole flight. Just for impression we add some more information about real efficiency of the achievement.

Distance: 91 003 km / 49 138 NM

Distance flown over water: 33 100 km /17 873 NM

Total hours flown: 369

Average fuel consumption: 18,1 l/h

Average engine setting at average cruise speed of 145 KTS at flight level FL100: 63% power, 4800 RPM, 30,5 MP

Average ground speed: 246,62 km/h / 133,2 KTS

Average head wind: 22,2 km/h / 12 KTS

Total fuel used: 6679 l / 1764 USgal / 4942 kg / 10895 lbs

The highest altitude: 8965 m / 29 413 feet in vicinity of M.Everest (overhead Nuptse, Lotse, South col)

Highest ground speed: 352 km/h / 190 KTS


According to information we have, we can compare our GreenLight WorldFlight challenge (regarding efficiency)  to incredible (also green) flight of two Swiss pilots Yannick Bovier and Francisco Agullo who successfully acomplished circumnavigation in two  CTLS LSA aircraft (Flight Design) in 2010 www.azimut270.ch Please try to get beautiful book about the flight written by Yannick Bovier.

They flew 232 hours distance 45926 km with average ground speed 198 km/h with average consumption of 19 litres/h.

For our distance they would need 460 h and 8740 litres of fuel what means that we improve efficiency of the previous  world flights for at least 30% what is astonishing number.


Please be adviced that this numbers are only indicative and might change in future if we get new informations about previous flights. Yannick,  please correct our calculations if you think they are wrong!!!
