Michael Combs and the Remos GX he is flying for the Flight for the Human Spirit remained ground bound in Texas last week as they waited out a series of high-wind days along their proposed route.
The flight recently celebrated a milestone: more than 13,000 miles and arrivals in 40 states. Combs will launch for New Mexico this week.
“I haven’t been home since mid-March so this is a real opportunity to sleep in my own bed, and cover our logistics for the remainder of the trip with our team,” Combs said of his stop in Denton, where he lives. “We only have 10 states and 8,000 miles to go. If the western states greet us with as much enthusiasm as the eastern states, then this flight will really be much more than an historic mission…it will become a journey that will always be regarded as one that lit hearts up from coast to coast.”
Combs recently uploaded more than 5,000 photos from the Flight on his website. Check the home page of that site for an itinerary, live Twitter, and Facebook updates, as well as blogs and videos, or follow Combs’ progress on AOPA Online.
