No room for error - what an incredible achievement!!!   To land on the helipad, 27m in diameter, he completed over 650 practice landings before the attempt on top of the 56-story hotel.  He needed just 20.76 meters to stop.  To make the feat possible he and a team of CubCrafters engineers along with renowned American aviation engineer and aircraft builder Mike Patey made a number of modifications to the aircraft, reducing the total weight to only 425 kilograms, moving the main fuel tank to the rear of the plane to allow for more aggressive braking and adding nitrous to enhance power for Czepiela’s secondary challenge – taking off from the helipad.    The Burj Al Arab is a luxury hotel located in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates.  Managed by Jumeirah hotel group, it is one of the tallest hotels in the world.  The shape of the structure is designed to resemble the sail of a ship.  It has a helipad near the roof, at a height of 210 m (689 ft) above ground.
