Alter Ego team member Nick Batsch flew his way to a brand new Distance World Record today at the 2012 Mondial in Dubai. The new record is 154.09 metres and should go official in the record books as soon as FAI has received and ratified the proper paperwork.
Nick also held the previous record of 151.95 meters. Both records were set using a NZ Aerosports JPX Petra. There is still one more round of distance to go tomorrow, so maybe we’ll see Nick set yet another one!
Congrats to Nick, well done!
