UK Cape challenge postponed until 2010

Steve Noujaim has decided to postpone his attempt at the Cape record until early 2010. Steve will use the extra time to further improve the aircraft, fitting long-range tanks and a Garmin G900X integrated avionics suite to replace the Blue Mountain screens that were part of the initial build.

The extra time will also give Steve the chance to raise some extra sponsorship and to put another 30 or 40 hours on the aeroplane before setting off for South Africa.
