“…The 1999 South to South Expedition holds the current World Record for the longest ever unsupported flight by trike. For 8 months in 1999 Olivier Aubert and Mike Blyth covered 43,000 km in a flight around the world that goes beyond the imagination. Also known as the Millennium Microlight Adventure, this flight was dubbed the 'last great flying adventure of the 20th century.'…”
These 2 pilots gained fame within the ultralight community all over the world and have ever since been an inspiration for many of us.The trike flown by Olivier happened to be French-made, and the model called “Voyageur”. I was impressed by its beefed-up appearance and the fact it did not have a control bar limiter in front of the pilot, giving the pilot an unparalleled suburb panoramic view.
