Jason is a CFI with some 1,500 hours of flying time while Lambercy, a resident of Germany, is a Private Pilot with an Instrument Rating and some 360 hours of total flight time.
The plan was for the flight to begin on June 18th this year, but the team is worried because they are still scrambling to raise some money for the flight. Lambercy has purchased his airline ticket with his own money, and many people have given donations in one form or another.
Jason was the AOPA's Top Flight Instructor Award recipient in 2008 and have been gaining fans on Facebook, followers on Twitter and support from a number of sources. Nonetheless, the team is short so they are selling miles online at $ 3.75 which can be made directly through the website www.flyingacrossamerica.com, and I urge you to follow my lead and make a donation to help.
General aviation is important to the U.S. economy, and after the beating it has taken from the government needs all of the help it can get.
So, dig into your pockets, grab some change and navigate over the www.flyingacrossamerica.com right away to make your donation.

Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
I ask people who don't fly, "How can you not fly when you live in a time in history when you can fly?"
