You can fly around the World
Escorted Around the World Flights
Our founder, Mickey Russell has set-up a new company that will provide around the world flights for pilots, plus flights to Africa and South America. If you and your spouse or guest(s) are interested in flying around the world, please visit our new website: http://www.eliteworldflights.com
Have you ever wondered if there are any great aviation adventures left? Yes, there are, and this is where you sign up!
Our aviation adventures are all-inclusive educational enrichment flights with a world-experienced flight leader/instructor. No more headaches caused by making the arrangements yourself: planning the stops, deciding where to stay and what experiences are worth your time, researching the paperwork needed, finding out how much the permit fees are. After years of world flight planning and travels have given our founder the knowledge necessary to create the ultimate aviation adventure for you.
Our featured adventure is a flight around the world, but we have other exciting educational adventures for you to try. Our aviation adventures not only meet every pilot’s flying dreams, but they also provide the pilot, their family and friends with time in remote and unique destinations.
We choose our itineraries based on the uniqueness of the destinations and a dedication to making our travels one of a kind and experienced by a select few. The quality of hotels (most are 5 stars) and service will be second to none and we stay in suites not rooms. And when it is time to dine, be prepared to enjoy some of the finest dining experiences of a lifetime with several meals prepared by world famous chefs.
As this is an educational aeronautical adventure, you and your spouse, family or guests. We are not a travel agency, and this is not a charter flight but a flight training adventure with a highly experienced Certified Flight Instructor. Before we leave on our adventure, you will spend a few days in Denver, Colorado learning more about flying around the world and additional training in your aircraft. It’s critical to both your safety and your enjoyment of the rest of the adventure that you feel competent in the aircraft that you be flying from the first days of your aviation enrichment adventure.
Of course we are still planning our attempt to set a world speed record. More information about that flight is listed below.
Mickey Russell and Jay
Jones will attempt this epic flight in November 2014 to maximize favorable
conditions It should be noted that more humans have stood on the moon than have
flown over both of the world's poles in a propeller-driven aircraft. We are also
working on trying to break Max Conrad's Westbound around the world speed record
Mickey Russell is no stranger to planning for such a flight, having helped former Apollo 12 astronaut Pete Conrad and former Deputy Secretary of Defense W. Paul Thayer and their crew set a world speed record in a Lear Jet in February 1996. Mickey is pleased that his friend Jay Jones has agreed to join him for this attempt. Jay is well known to fans at the Reno air races, and has a solid background in engineering and aircraft design.
During our flight we will attempt to film and document any evidence of Intelligent Design of our planet. We will also be trying to help to clarify the importance of the polar regions and the general health of our planet while making an insightful, informative and inspiring film of this historic and epic flight.
Another major focus of the film will be the importance of clean water to populations all over the globe. Since the flight will take the pilots over most of the water in the world (both in liquid and frozen form), water becomes a recurring theme in the expedition. From the frozen oceans over the North Pole to the rainforests of Africa and South America, water is ever present but not always fit for human consumption.
Our crew/production team are looking forward to sharing through this film what they will see and learn flying around the world. We've come to realize that, with the use of modern technology, we can share this experience with the public in hopes of informing or even inspiring.
