CORINTH, TEXAS – It is 49 down and one to go in the Michael Combs Odyssey. Combs’ venture, to become the first Sport Pilot to visit all 50 states in a Light Sport Aircraft, has already covered 23,800 miles, logged 282 hours of flying time and touched the lives of 22 million people through newspaper, television and radio interviews. His project, titled “Flight for the Human Spirit,” has inspired a lot of people.
With one state left, Combs is facing a financial obstacle: “Hawaii’s a big nut.” Combs has to ship his REMOS GX over there in a container and it’s going to cost $8,600 each way. Wicks Aircraft Supply and REMOS Aircraft have already pledged to help out with the expenses, but Combs will need to line up additional financial support before he can head for the islands.
