The young man behind Wings Around the World
At some stage in their lives, most people have fantasised about flying and many have dreamt about travelling the world alone. Few however have been bold enough to combine the two and believe they could fly solo around the earth. No one has ever done it at just 18 years of age. Ever.
Lachlan Smart is a high-achieving visionary who will take off from the east coast of Australia in June 2016 in a single engine aircraft and spread his Wings Around the World. Raised and educated on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Lachie is preparing for what is planned to be a 10 week journey that will cover almost 24,000 nautical miles including 26 stops in 20 countries on five continents.
