We are very proud to announce that the extreme pilot Matevž Lenarčič successfully circumnavigated the World with the Pipistrel aircraft Virus SW 914 Turbo – in the most demanding possible way!
Matevž completed his flight in Slovenia on 19. 4. 2012 at 16.00 local time and landed at the Jože Pučnik airport in Brnik, near Ljubljana – the same airport where he also began his flight. He proved once again that the Pipistrel Virus SW 914 Turbo aircraft is capable of crossing both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans (and the Indian Ocean as well), capable of extreme heights required to fly over Mt. Everest and capable of withstanding drastically low temperatures of the Antarctic and high temperatures and humidity when crossing the equator.
