A week of firsts

It’s been a week since Wings Around the World was officially launched and to put it quite simply, the response to what Lachlan Smart is hoping to achieve has been outstanding.

From coverage in the local Sunshine Coast area to national media attention, it was a busy two days for Lachlan, and perhaps for the first time in his life he was recognised in the Alexandra Headland Surf Life Saving Club.

That wasn’t the only first for Lachlan, his first media engagement came courtesy of the Sunshine Coast Daily, his first on-camera appearance with both Seven News Local Sunshine Coast and WIN News Sunshine Coast, before his first LIVE, in-studio radio interview with the Hot91FM breakfast team and of course his first LIVE TV interview with Sunrise.

Of course with so much happening, there were plenty of people who helped make it all happen, in particular was Aero Dynamic Flight Academy who have helped Lachie with all his flight training so far, and who provided use of their flight school as a quasi media centre for two days.

With so much going on, we’ve compiled some of the highlights from the week and listed them below. So just in case you missed it, take a look back on the week that was.
