Promoting General Aviation

Day -8: Last week-end at home

Our flight will start in 8 days from now, but Vincent will leave Frankfurt for Jacksonville and then Ocala on next Friday. The flight will land at 10pm in Jacksonville, and after one year spent developing this project together, we’ll finally meet “for real”.

On Saturday the 19th, we hold our first meeting in Dunnellon - all aviation fans from central Florida are invited to join us there. Join in and listen to Jason as he does a brief presentation on Pilot Error and uncovers how to lessen hazards in the cockpit. We’ll also talk a lot about our flight, and share about all possible aviation-related topics.

Sunday the 20th should be a quiet day, the last one before leaving in direction of Daytona Beach and then Destin on the 21st. Jet-lag compensation for Vincent, and last moments at home for Jason. So all in all, this week-end was the last one we spent in our homes before jumping head first in the realization of this incredible adventure.

Being away from our families for three to four weeks will certainly be tough. But this trip is the opportunity to be at the heart of the General Aviation community. We have been in contact with so many aviation fans while preparing this flight, finally meeting them will be a great reward for ourselves. This will be a great human adventure, with lots of exchanges. We’ll soon be back in our families with a lot to share.

Talking about rewards, we continue to collect some that we’ll later distribute to all our patrons. It’s still too early to release all details, but we can say a bit more. Some sponsors will treat you, patrons, with giveaway gifts, as some already did during the preparation. Other sponsors will offer discount prices to ALL our patrons. Yes, you read it correctly: there will be benefits for ALL those buying miles, not only some happy few. More on this later, but be sure that buying miles is a good idea and will be rewarded. Our budget is not fully secured yet - buy miles today to help us promote General Aviation.
