We are still waiting for FAI (Federation Aeronautique Internationale) to ratify Karen Skinner’s height record of 5102 meters.
It’s now been 6 months waiting for the international body responsible for registering all aircraft records, to give their approval. Reminding you that it was 8 months for the previous distance record as well as various records by Ramon Morillas.
Bureaucracy and paperwork ‘necessary’ to increase the suspense and the weight of our small aircraft. Karen carried 5 instruments in total, 2 official and mandatory GPS’s, the MLR, one personal Garmin GPS, and the offical and obligatory barograph . For those of you that would like the challenge, and are not scared off by the paperwork, to beat or set a new Record, you can check all the information on the official website . Here you can consult the records section of Karen in the FAI page by entering her name in the search panel. We’d like to add to all of Karen’s fans, and followers that our tireless Papwoman is preparing herself for more Records, in both distance and height.
Good Luck Karen!
