Crazy and thrilling, the first time the plane landed on the rooftop helipad


Crazy and thrilling action shown by the following action. A pilot successfully landed the first plane on the helipad of the Burj Al Arab building.

Launch CNN, Friday (17/3/2023), was a Polish pilot, Lukasz Czepiela, who made history crazy in aviation. He did it on Tuesday (14/3). He became the first person to land a plane on the helipad of the iconic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel in Dubai, UAE.

Czepiela was able to stop his specially adapted light aircraft within just 21 meters (68 ft). It was able to land on a platform just 27 meters (89 ft) wide, 212 meters (696 ft) above the ground.

“The biggest challenge is the lack of external reference points, which are usually found in airports where you have a runway of hundreds of meters,” he told sponsors Red Bull.

The action has been planned since 2021 and requires 650 test landings.

Czepiela’s day job is captaining an Airbus A320. But he has some impressive flying feats, including winning the 2018 world championship challengerweight title at the Red Bull Air Race.

Previously, he was able to land a plane on a wooden pier in Sopot, Poland. Czepiela joins an elite group of sporting legends who grace the hotel’s sail-shaped helipad.

Tennis champions Roger Federer and Andre Agassi have competed there in 2005. Also former F1 Grand Prix winner David Coulthard made a donut circle there in 2013.
