Ivo Boscarol


Matevz's flight around the World is a real statement to the extreme aero-efficiency of Pipistrel aircraft. The Virus SW will once again prove its leading role by flying faster, further and higher than ever before while using less fuel than any other aircraft out there.

Preparing airplane Pipistrel Virus-SW for the project GreenLight WorldFligt involves certain modifications. A turbo charged Rotax 914 engine will be installed, which will reduce overall fuel consumption and enable flying at very high altitudes (up to 9000m / 30,000ft). Wings will get additional fuel tanks. To reduce drag and weight, the aircraft will be a tail-wheel version.  All instruments, including those for possible IMS - instrumental meteorological condition - will be electronic, which will also reduce the overall weight.
