Michael Combs and the Flight for the Human Spirit landed in California last week. Combs, who is attempting to fly in or to all 50 states in a Remos GX light sport aircraft, has now flown coast to coast on the journey that began in April.
Combs and the Remos, which is named Hope One, landed in Victorville, Calif., on Aug. 24, and proceeded to Palm Springs, San Diego, and Redding. This week Combs landed in Oregon and is now progressing toward Bellingham, Wash. The Flight for the Human Spirit will fly north along the coast and then into western Montana. Combs expects to fly into Canada sometime in the next two weeks, and then into Alaska.
You can follow the Flight for the Human Spirit on the website or AOPA Online.
Helicopter training is generally very safe. So why do run-on takeoffs and landings feel so wrong?
If you are going to learn to fly a helicopter you first have to learn how to control it.
The Commemorative Air Force will announce a new headquarters location.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
