Alex Fisher is a 17 year old who is currently flying solo around Australia to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service and become the youngest person to circumnavigate Australia solo by aircraft in the process.
Alex has named his project â€œFlight of Solidarityâ€ (www.flightofsolidarity.com.au) and thanks to sponsorship from Spidertracks, you can track his progress on the â€œAlexâ€™s Location pageâ€ of the website.
When we caught up with Alex, he was over-nighting in Weipa after the 3rd day of his two week journey. We spoke briefly about what inspired him to do the project, how long heâ€™s been flying, the help heâ€™s received and his sponsors.
This chat was released as one of our Australia Desk segments for the Airplane Geeks podcast. You can listen to it on the site where we host our collection of Australia Desk segments:
