Promoting General Aviation

Flying Across America? The Go / No-Go decision…

As our departure date gets closer, so does the moment of making the decision to start the flight… or not. The funding is not ensured yet and we don’t know if it will be possible to fly all the way from Florida to California and back as planed. We had a long discussion about that and made the following decisions:

  • Vincent will fly from Frankfurt (Germany) to Jacksonville, FL anyway. The flight ticket was already paid for in late December (on our own funds) and is not modifiable or refundable. It was bought so to have the lowest possible fare.
  • The first legs will be flown as planed, weather permitting naturally. Thanks to Destin Jet and our supporters in Baton-Rouge, we will save a lot on accommodation already during the first days.
  • The decision to continue as planed, modify the itinerary to go first to places where we have supporters, or to turn around will be made on a “last minute” basis in accordance to available funding and donations.

We have great supporters who invited us at several places and we do our best to make all this happen. We have some ideas and surprises in preparation and even if the situation is not fully clear right now we hope that everything will unfold as planed.

At this moment, we need the following things:

  • Miles purchases - Use the yellow buttons on the right hand side of this page for that
  • Sales of t-shirts, mousepads and glassware from our online shop
  • Contacts with aviation-oriented and mainstream media at our stops
  • Contacts with aviation fans, particularly in Roswell (NM), Pensacola (FL) and Lafayette (LA)
  • Aviation bloggers to post about our project

We do all what we can to continue promoting General Aviation, to not disappoint our great supporters and we need your help for that. Act now, buy miles!
