(Click for details:)
1. One eyed Japanese native pilot (U.S. citizen) 2. Under the COVID 19 circumstances


Remarks: Especially, for U.S. pilots, FAA no longer approves the ferry tank installation for circumnavigation.
Please be aware this situation because we were denied installing 100 gallon tip tanks 2yrs ago
and we were also denied to install cabin ferry tanks (50gallon) prior to 2wks departure date. Thus,
our airplane was original 114 gallon usable configuration Bonanza. The longest leg was between
Thailand to Philippine.
It was 1202nm and we flew 8hrs with 20gallon remain gas when we landed.
Lean of peak is the everything during RTW.
Installation of Sat phone with Aux antena is best option with HF radio.
I had only HF radio and it was very difficult to hear in Sri Lanka and Russia with HF radio.
Ask relay on 121.50 if you were not able to hear anything.
In my case, U.S. and European airplane pilots helped me out.
