FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Combs to Speak at AirVenture 2012
Lake Dallas, TX - As a fan posted on The Fight for the Human Spirit's Facebook Page, "Is it that time already?" He was referring to the annual AirVenture Air Show held in Oshkosh, WI that will attract over ten thousand aircraft and thousands upon thousands of fans of aviation through the gates during each of the seven days that it is open.
One of the highlights of the show this year will feature the aircraft "Hope One" which will be on display in the REMOS booth during the show. This Light Sport Aircraft has attracted worldwide attention as it has soared into aviation history by logging over 38,000 miles and stopping at over 200 airports across the U.S. Pilot Michael Combs who has been in the pilot's seat of Hope One throughout the journey since it has taken off in Salina, KS is scheduled to speak during the entire week at several of the venues.
The topics that Combs will present are:
"How to Plan a Cross Country Trip"
"20 of the Best Places to Fly" and
"Ten Ways to Get Your Wife to Fly"
"I'm honored to speak at AirVenture," said Combs. "A lot of people follow The Flight and it is always a great opportunity to meet them and see how we've been able to help them accomplish their own dreams."
Combs and his son Daniel Routh have just completed a successful Transcontinental Flight in Hope One as they took off from Carlsbad, CA and landed in Wilmington, NC. The flight covered 2,377 miles and was completed in just over two days while maintaining Sport Pilot rules which excluded any nighttime flying. "I'm glad that everyone will have the chance to see Hope One this year after she has been so amazing and has performed so well. It really shows how incredibly dependable these aircraft can be with the proper care."
Combs is currently preparing for a Cross Country Bicycle ride which will encourage millions to get moving. After overcoming a serious illness he is documenting the challenges that he is facing as he conditions for the 3,200 mile journey. He is also planning to fly Hope One in Hawaii this fall which will make it the first Light Sport Aircraft to land in all fifty states.
