Australia: From Kingaroy to Benalla with 144 km/h average speed

David Jansen flew 1582 km in an ASG 29 E

At the very beginning of the new year David Jansen fulfilled a long-cherished dream. After a planning before of one year, on 2nd January 2015 he started in his ASG 29 E from Kingaroy in the east of Australia. After a 12 hours flight and more than 1500 km further south he landed in Benalla.

With this, David Jansen has smashed the Australian Gliding Distance Record of 1250 km by more than 250 km.

David has written a must-read report about the preparation and implementation of this exceptional flight.

We offer him our sincere congratulations on this great success!
