Good luck if you find out anything let me know.  I have been 
talking to the Russian embassy here in DC and all the data I 
have so far for this round world trip is I must pay a Russian 
navigator for the privilege to fly there.  So far it looks 
like the navigator tab will be about $4,500. Now, I read not 
too long ago, a VFR corridor opened between Alaska and 
Russia.  If this is true, then the Russian government may 
have lightened up.  Lining up avgas is also proving to be a 
problem.  I’ll check with the embassy again.  I got an idea, 
to hook up with one of the acro pilots there in Russia and 
have her/him to act as my navigator.  I wonder if they will 
let me do that?

Good luck on your trip. If you get any good information let 
me know.

Later, Dive / Fly Safe
