Jochen Zeischka: 274km European HG record

Friday 17 May, 2019

Belgian pilot Jochen Zeischka flew a 274.79km declared-goal straight-line flight on his Moyes Litespeed RX 5 Pro on 12 May 2019, a new European record.

Jochen launched from Beauraing in Belgium just before midday, and landed six hours later at La Selle-sur-le-Bied in France.

His preliminary record claim is with the FAI for ratification, and stands to supersede Carl Wallbank (GB)’s April 2016 record of 264.99km.
