Imperial Car Supermarkets Proudly Sponsor Flight Of Ikarus

Richard Foster, is a dare devil microlight pilot, based at South Coast Microlights in Goodwood. He is just about to set off on an epic journey flying his C42 Microlight from Goodwood in Sussex, across the Channel to France, then on to Italy, Croatia, Greece and Crete, over the Mediterranean Sea to Egypt, Sudan, then to Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Botswana – the final destination being Cape Town in South Africa.

He and co-pilot Richard Bird are hoping to be the first to pilot a microlight aircraft over 12,500 miles, without any external support.

Of course they then also have to retrace their flight to return to Goodwood!

Richard Foster says ‘I’m doing it for fun, the sheer adventure and to show that the latest breed of lightweight, fuel efficient microlights are not only a joy to fly but have the capability and reliability to withstand the severe weather and hostile terrain that can be expected on this demanding route.’
