Adrian’s presentation is entitled: ” I Could Never Be So Lucky Again!”
Tales from the cockpit as this retired airline pilot flies his 67-year-old restored Beechcraft Bonanza solo around the World and over the North Pole. In 2016, Adrian flew a challenging 24,000-nautical-mile flight around the World and in 2021 he completed an epic nonstop 21-hour flight from Reykjavik, Iceland, across the North Pole to Fairbanks, Alaska. Adrian will give you a glimpse of parts of the world that most people may never get to see, through amazing pictures and videos. He will also talk about the challenges he faced with preparing for and completing these flights.

See you all there!
