Young Solo Aviator to Touch Down at Gladstone and Airlie Beach / Shute Harbour Airports Saturday on Record-Breaking Flight Around Australia

Also on Saturday 21 June, a 17-year-old Brisbane pilot, attempting to be the youngest person to circumnavigate Australia solo in an aircraft, will touch down at Gladstone and Airlie Beach / Shute Harbour Airports.

Alexander Fisher's 'Flight of Solidarity', is also about raising awareness and funds for the Royal Flying Doctors Service (RFDS) and motivating the youth of Australia to actively contribute to their communities.

The Year 12 student from Cleveland on Brisbane's bayside, has designed the Flight of Solidarity to combine his passion for flying with his own desire to make a difference.

Alex's Cessna 172 VH-DBB will be departing Archerfield Airport in Brisbane at about 10am this Saturday on the first leg of his journey.  He will stop briefly at Gladstone Airport for fuel, before heading to Airlie Beach for an overnight stop. The exact time and arrival point will be weather dependant.

He will depart the next day heading North to Townsville and Cairns.

We wish Alex all the best on his record-breaking flight and encourage all followers to donate to this very worthy cause.
