On Saturday, April 5, a well-known journalist and traveler Dmitry Komarov, the team experienced pilots landed at a small airfield near Melitopol, belonging to the family of MP Balytsky. Dmitri decided to make a record flight across Ukraine on the small four-seater plane.
In expeditions we often have to use the services of small aircraft and fly in a small four-seater aircraft. And not only in the wild, but civilized, too. In many countries, they play the role of minibuses. In this air-taxi, for example, we flew from Tanzania to Zanzibar island for less than $ 50. Small planes were used in Brazil, Mexico, Bolivia, Nepal and many other countries. And in Canada and the United States private aircraft is generally not considered to be unusual. Why is it us? We want to show that in our country too there are opportunities but need to develop this area. Small airfields in Ukraine is enough, but know this, not all. But the condition of our roads is known to everyone. If you develop a small aircraft, it will be possible to move very quickly, even between small towns that have no airports. Through the cities and passes of our route. And, of course, small aircraft is not only personal flights but also medicine, rescue operations, monitoring purpose of environmental protection, control of deforestation, military, agriculture, – says Dmitry.
In his Instagram, he told the followers that their route covers almost the whole of Ukraine, except closed for flight regions. On the way the pilots Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Odessa, Vinnitsa, Kamenetz-Podolsk, Zhytomyr, and Koshino, Drohobych, Lviv, Berdychiv, Haisyn, Fun and many other cities.
