Flight Path
The flight path will carry us over 25 states. The ideal, and thus shortest, distance totals 33,235 kilometres but the more realistic flight distance will measure more than 37,000 kilometres.

The desired flight path:
The flight will travel over Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, China, Korea, Japan, Russia, Alaska, Canada, United States, Denmark, Iceland, Great Britain, France, Germany, Austria and it will end where it started, in Slovenia.

The 'little less than ideal' flight path:
The actual global political situation (Iraq conflict) and some possible bureaucratic setbacks forced us to prepare another flight path that will lead us over Italy, Greece, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Djibouti into Yemen, Oman, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Japan, Russia, United States, Canada, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Guyana, Surinam, French Guyana, Brasil, Cap Vert Islands, Senegal, Mauritania, Western Sahara, Morocco, Spain, France, Italy and then back to Slovenia. All told, we have to cross 34 countries and cover at least 47,100 kilometres.
