Champion pilots paint the sky above Crete with “2022”


Shortly before the end of 2021, pilots Katerina Kalligiannaki and Nikos Makrakis, air athletes and champions of Greece in 2020-2021, boarded a single-engine aircraft and formed in the sky of Crete the number “2022”.

According to Creta Live, this was done for the first time with a single-engine, ultralight aircraft without autopilot.

The plane was tracked at 3,500 feet from the ground in the area of Heraklion.

The huge “2022” was 25 km long and 8 km wide, while the total distance flown by the plane was about 90-100 nautical miles or ~ 180 km.

It started from the area of ​​Tylisos and ended in the area of ​​Episkopi." version="1.1"/>" alt="" class="i-amphtml-intrinsic-sizer" style="box-sizing: border-box; max-width: 100%; display: block !important;" role="presentation" aria-hidden="true" i-amphtml-auto-lightbox-visited="" />pilots Katerina Kalligiannaki and Nikos Makrakis
