Icom help Adventurer Fly into record books

Adventurer David Hempleman-Adams has successfully flown across the Atlantic in a helium balloon and set 5 new world records relating to the distance and time he spent flying, along with the size and class of his balloon.

Setting out from St Johns, Newfoundland, Canada, David spent 4 days in temperatures of minus 20C in an open basket before landing south of Dijon, France. Space was limited in the basket that was no larger than a coffee table but David made sure he had Icom radios aboard. He said, “I had the Icom IC-A200 installed as the main onboard radio and the IC-A3 as a back-up, I couldn’t have done the attempt without them”.

On completion of the 2625 miles flight David said "This is definitely my last solo flight. I'm so pleased I’ve done it I would like to thank everyone involved."
