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.
The two pilots dedicated the flight to all Greeks.
