Land on a glacier.

Land on a glacier.

This is just about the only thing a Europa Monowheel can’t do. Land on a glacier. Unless maybe, in your imagination, you strap a snowboard underneath the aircraft. 

We have Europa Club Mountain Pilots. Holding the appropriate privileged qualification to land their own Europa Monowheel aircraft on an altisurface; For Europe: Rémi, Jean-Philippe and John.  (Acknowledgement; new EASA Mountain pilot requirements in 2018). For the Antipodes: Tim

Sadly a snowboard modification to enable a Europa Mono to land on a glacier does not exist.

If you zoom into the centre of the picture you will see two dots. These dots are actually :

An aircraft taking-off and the same aircraft’s shadow.

Whilst on the subject of shadows. What is the danger the faces pilot of the aircraft?
