British PPG pilot Karen Skinner has recently smashed the female world distance record over in Spain.

Previous record was 269km. Karen flew for 8.25hrs covering 450km ! 8)

She managed to take off with 40 litres of fuel :shock:

Nice one Pete.

Not the easiest to figure out through the various classes, but a ton of interesting facts - including what I was looking for :

Distance in a straight line without landing : 1,105.0 km :shock::shock::shock: Unbelievable distance ! How much fuel must he have taken off with...

Date of flight: 23/04/2007

Pilot: Ramon MORILLAS SALMERON (Spain)

Course/place: Jerez, Cadix (Spain) - Lanzarote, Canaries (Spain)

Microlight: Advance Omega 7 ( PAP ROS 1450)

Ramon is obviously a bit of an adrenalin junkie, as he is the same guy that set the recent "official" world altitude record - see a previous Videos of the Week clip here if you missed it.
