Pilot's information

This page presents the results of your database search. Please read the following information before proceeding down to the data :

  • the information published on this page is updated daily.
  • we indicate for each pilot his/her nationality at the time of the record flight. Do not therefore be surprised to see mentions of countries which no longer exist as such.
  • similarly, the manufacturer name for each aircraft corresponds to the name of the company which built it. This may not correspond with the current name of a company which may at a later date have been involved in mergers. We have tried to minimize errors and welcome any correction of this type of information.
  • most current records are available for consultation online. However, not all past records have yet been researched from our archives and added to the database.
  • Persons intending to attempt world records are advised that figures shown for record performances should not be relied upon as being the latest information. They should contact their National Airsport Control Organisation or the FAI Office (by email or by fax at +41 21 345 1077) for the latest authoritative information before making any record attempt.
