Joven británica completa circunnavegación en un avión microligero

By Phil Bainbridge

August 18, 2021 - November 11, 2021 - Una pilota británica de 19 años se ha convertido en la mujer más joven en volar en solitario alrededor del mundo, y en la persona más joven enemprender el viaje de 52.080,3km, de 200 horas, en un avión microligero.

Zara Rutherford will be flying clockwise around the world, crossing 57 countries and five continents, making two crossings of the Equator, to take in Colombia and Indonesia. The low weight of her Shark UL microlight plane means it will only require around 2,500 litres of fuel for the entire journey, less than a typical passenger jet uses in 10 minutes.

Despite flying from a young age and coming from a family of aviators, Rutherford only obtained her full flying license a year ago.
