One of many highlights flying across Russia was my visit with Captain Aleksandr Chernolikhov. A Russian Nuclear Submarine Captain, Aleksandr has restored a beautiful Piper Pacer based at a grass strip here in Petropavlosk. A visit to his flat includes an opportunity to handle his vast collection of vintage and modern Russian firearms. One of his other outrageous activities is “Snowmobile Paragliding”!Many thanks to Captain Chernolikhov and the pilots from Mag Aero for hosting me at Petropavlosk.
