In the latter part of this month, the British Antarctic Microlight Expedition will conduct cold weather testing training in Northern Sweden. We expect the conditions in N. Sweden to be harsh and brutal. The pilots (some of whom are qualified and some whom are under training – both injured service personnel and support elements) will have their first taste of take off and landing microlights on snow and ice. gives more information on who we are and what we’re doing.

The microlight in the image, shows the version we shall be taking to the South Pole. We’re looking for you to support us in this Guinness World Record setting British Expedition.
