The autogyro route around the world route

The record attempt circumnavigation of the globe by Norman Surplus is expected to take approximately 115 days / 4 months – depending on weather conditions and flight permitting logistics.  Gyrox autogyro will depart in mid March 2010. The proposed legs will typically be an average of 300 miles per day (averaging six days per week) divided into sectors of approximately 3x100 or 2x150 mile duration (approximating to 4-5 hours flying per day). This amounts to 27,000 mile circumnavigation flown in approximately 105 days inclusive of 15 "catch up" days for cumulative weather delays.
