Wings- Coast to Coast for Vets 2016
Jun 5, 2016 - Jun 19, 2016
On June 5th, Gerard Randolph will take off on an exciting and challenging adventure by flying a Cessna 172 Skyhawk solo from New Jersey to California and back again.
Wings- Coast to Coast for Vets 2016 will raise funds and awareness for wounded, ill and injured service members and their families. This 5,000 + nautical mile journey will involve crossing hot deserts and traversing mountainous terrain. It will take Gerard through some of the busiest airspace in the world and into endless miles of empty sky over flat plains. This flight will definitely put his skills as a pilot and the capabilities of the aircraft to the test. He believes these challenges pale in comparison to the challenges our recovering veterans and their families face every day. That is why Gerard is dedicating this flight to them.
