The new Green Light Wolrd Flight mission is dedicated to the collection of climate change data. While previous missions focused on soot, this time they focused on the wider composition of pollution.

Lenarčič started to fly from Maribor and will continue through Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam to China. From there he flew north through Mongolia to Russia, where the Russian pilot Andrej Dubrovin will accompany him on his way, and then back to his homeland. The mission will take 40 days, Lenarčič will complete the flight in 13 stages.
