Remarks: We are very fortunate to have a huge group of volunteers to assist.
I don’t think we can do this without White Rose’s help.
Having a team in Hong Kong tracking the aircraft and send me in flight weather updates helps enormously,
especially for weather deviation and re-routing decision. I think getting sponsors was a project itself,
but having enough funding makes a huge difference
because there are a lot of surprise fees and cost, especially with ground handling agents,
they are the single most expensive item on our bill, follow by fuel and hotel.
We did two trial flights before the actual RTW, proven to be extremely valuable.
We ferried the aircraft from Australia to Hong Kong, gave me the chance to get used
to long flight in a GA aircraft,
and the ground support team a chance to practice the flow and learn from the experience,
making the RTW operation smoother.
Make sure the GHA charge you appropriately.
