On May 1, 2018, Mischa Gelb and Ruben Dias set out from Whistler, Canada on a unique mission to do a round-the-world trip in a helicopter, the realisation of a dream they had long been chasing, and one that went far beyond simply covering an amazing amount of territory. They named this global voyage EPIC: Empowering People, Inspiring Change.
97 days later, on August 6, 2018, after flying over 60,000 km and crossing 45 countries, they touched down back home in Whistler, establishing 2 world records in the process.
During this fascinating journey, they were able to meet and inspire hundreds of people across 5 continents, through a series of open-for-all conferences aimed at encouraging future entrepreneurs.
Fast-forward 4 years, and we are proud to have Mischa and Ruben as our ambassadors. Not satisfied with completing one successful round-the-world trip by helicopter, in 2024 they will be taking off again, this time flying the Hill HX50!
Now you can read all about their incredible journey in The Epic Dream: the high points, the setbacks, the astonishing landscapes, the moments of exhilaration (or, occasionally, sheer terror), and of course the amazing people they met along the way.
A must for pilots, travel enthusiasts, and just about anyone who enjoys a thrilling read!
