Australian Sacha Dench, who left Russia on the 19th of September on a Dudek Universal paramotor, has finished her several thousand kilometre journey by crossing the Channel yesterday morning.

After almost three months accompanying Bewick Swans during their migration to raise awareness about the species’ decline, she landed in England, finishing her adventure in style.

Initially, the plan was to fly a foot launch paramotor, but an injury forced her to continue using a trike. Motor: Fresh Breeze. Wing: a slightly modified Dudek Universal.

When she arrived in England, she was surrounded by the press. What a remarkable achievement to raise public awareness about birds and nature – mission accomplished on all levels. Well done Sacha Dench!
