North Pole Travel and Global Warming, What it Means to You

( )  ( Model Airplanes )    ( Motorcycle Tours of Southern Europe )

The North Pole expedition would be much tougher if we didn't have these Russian helicopters.   To make the modern polar expeditions safe, you need to have helicopters.  They can be in the air in a moments notice and have a very high speed cruising capability with the added feature of being to land almost anywhere.  The pilots are experienced arctic pilots with many trips to the North Pole.  This experience is very important.   We do everything possible to make the trip safe and memorable with good memories.
