Call in to speak with the host
Michael Combs took off from Salina, Kansas on April 8,2010 in a REMOS Light Sport Aircraft with the goal of flying into all fifty states and inspiring millions to follow their dreams. A journey of this magnitude, covering more than 40,000 miles and with stops in more than 200 cities across America has never before been accomplished in a Light Sport Aircraft. Millions have watched as history has been unfolding before their eyes.
On September 30th, Michael touched down in Hawaii in front of a record air show crowd on the island of Oahu. This marked the completion of his mission and set his place in the history books as he became the first Sport Pilot to fly the same aircraft into all fifty states. He now holds five world records in aviation. The Flight for the Human Spirit started as a dream, and is proof that all things are possible to those who believe. It has always been Michael's dream to fly -- a dream he thought was lost forever after a serious illness almost took his life in 2003. Just seven years later, his dream began coming true! But, it's not just about his dream; Michael knows what it's like to face impossible odds. As a result he set out to inspire others to dream again and pursue those dreams with vigor and determination...and to do it now. The Flight for the Human Spirit now reachs more than 28 million people and is focused on inspiring millions more to follow their own dreams, no matter what obstacles may stand in the way. That's the driving force of this project.
It's good to talk.
