Skirting thunderstorms in Chattanooga, Tenn., Michael Combs reached Atlanta last week in the Flight for the Human Spirit. Combs and the Remos GX he is flying to all 50 states stopped at the Good Neighbor Day airshow and open house at Dekalb-Peachtree Airport on June 5.
Poor weather and then high winds kept the airplane in Atlanta until June 7, but Combs has launched for Charlotte, N.C. The Flight for the Human Spirit will make several stops in North Carolina, including historic First Flight Airport in Kill Devil Hills; Dare County Regional in Manteo; and Wilmington International in Wilmington.
A complete itinerary and Twitter and Facebook updates can be found on the Flight for the Human Spirit website. Follow Combs’s progress at AOPA Online.
