First let me tell you that I admire your effort and congratulate you on your success in completing the planned mission. It is quite an achievement!

However, I have a couple of qestions.

1) I fail to see how this mission will manage to advance the cause of FREEDOM anywhere, especially in IRAN?!

2) Assuming that the cause of freedom was implied for IRAN (since US, the origin of flight, is a free society!), then what about the fact that one of the pilots wasn't even willing to risk flying over Iran on an APPROVED flight plan and path!!! What kind of message would this send to the intended audience (Iran's youth), about risk taking, follow-through and steadfastness?!

Just curious!

Nevertheless, you get an A for your perseverence and effort!

Outstanding Achievement Guys!

Your accomplishment is quite incredible, and your trip is a great example of the ability to achieve your goals when you live in a free society.

We must preserve and hold-on tightly to Freedom wherever it works well in the world, because it is a tremendous blessing that many people take for granted. By saying that, I am implying that Freedom as defined in the USA, is not best for every Country or Culture in the world. There can be many degrees of freedom, each suited or tailored to each unique society.

Many congratulations to the two of you, your families, friends, and supporters! I'm sure there are many people, and maybe some in the government of your homeland that are very, very proud of you. You are very deserving of being in the future history books for breaking new American and International records in aviation.

Best wishes in reaching all future goals!!!

I wish the best for you and all other Iranians. Here is a link for the first Iranian who is walking the earth. We wish him the best of luck.

Dear Farhad & Arshid,
It is so good to see you guys back. You made us all proud with your courage and bravery. The dream should never die, the site must continue to remain open, as continuous reminder for your cause/dream and every Iranian's dream of reaching the ultimate and accomlishing what they are capable of, as you so proudly have paved the road in your own way. We should not wait for another Nader or skandar to come aroud, you are the one, every Iranian can be that Nader or Skandar. I think the web site now needs to take an additinal turn by providing tools and needed encouragment necessary to make a change, by providing expert guidence/help to those Iranians specailly in our home land who have and/or will lose thier freedom by becoming alcoholic and/or drug addicts.
The story of Simorgh has provided the avenue of understading that we must free ourselves first in order to free others. Our youth in our homeland must fight against this political disaster who is destroying our young generation, your site can reach out as it has so far to bring the much needed awarness.

Freedom Flight Mission is accomplished,but its impact and inspiration on young Iranians will last forever, and this mision is registered in our history.
Your strength and determination are guidlines for our people to pursue their dreams of a better future for Iran, and a message to political activists to believe in themselves and take actions to raise the bar for Democracy and Freedom for our country in every aspect around the world.

Dorrod Farhad and Arshid

Since we learnt of your decision to take this highly risky endeavour, we never stopped following you via your professionally designed website.
Everyday we were thinking of you and your families hoping this highly risky undertaking would end without a trouble.
As you’re nearing the end of your high flying mission to break the world record, we are so happy to see that you successfully managed to achieve your objective.
You have done this despite ALL the troubles and uncertainties you faced throughout this mission.
You left behind your families with this knowledge that you might not come back alive.
We are deeply proud of you and your enormous courage.
It was so comforting that “The Simorgh” phoenix supported you faithfully throughout this challenging attempt.
Throughout this venture we saw in you the sprit of our greatest inspiration, Cyrus the Great and Darius the Great, our beloved fathers and nation founders.
We were so excited when we realised that you Farhad was allowed to fly over the Persepolis, the holiest place in the heart and mind of any true Iranian, and also our national proud and dignity.
You wanted to demonstrate to all Iranians, especially young generations, that nothing can stop them to make their dreams come true.
You certainly achieve this objective.
You showed to our people and country that all challenges can be confronted, all dreams can come true and all aspirations can be achieved with a clear determination.
You made us our greatest fathers and founders of Persia, Iran, Cyrus the Great and Darius the Great, proud where their names have been shamed and their resting places are under attack by the Islamic rulers in Iran.
Your achievement made us all proud as friends and fellow Iranians too.
Above all, you made Iran proud where her beautiful name has been impairing for years.
We do hope that all Iranians especially younger ones would learn a lot from your courage in the next coming months and years.
We also hope that the spirits of Cyrus the Great, Darius the Great and all true Iranian nationalists past and present would inspire young Iranians now and in the future to achieve their aspirations by learning more from your message.
We are all proud of YOU and your achievement gentlemen.

Hi Guys,
Very inspiring flight, Bravo… it is truly a dream come true (pilot speaking).
I enjoyed your website and wish I had heard of it earlier so I could great you here in SFO. I’m impressed by your preparation for the flight both mechanically and technically.
I’m a private pilot myself here in Palo Alto California and I’m leaving for Oshkosh in a few days, I’m sure Farhad has done this trip several times already.
Good luck with your future excursions.
