We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


I’ve always dreamed of flying a small aeroplane across the Atlantic. While I’ll be realising one of my dreams, I think about those who can’t or didn’t have the chance to.

My Dad was one of those people who died early and didn’t get to do the things he wanted to do. He died at 60 from Cancer. So I thought I should dedicate this effort to those who have dreamed but were taken too early.. So I’d like to raise some money for Cancer Research.

Leaving from Farway Common Airfield in Devon, the aim is to arrive at the EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, Wisconsin - the World’s largest fly in. This is a 4000 mile trek over some of the most remote land and sea.
