As I write this, a remarkable young man called Barrington Irving is on the first leg of a trip that will take him from Miami, Florida all the way to Miami, Florida, the long way, covering more than 21,000 miles in the process. His 5 week trip may not set any speed records, but he is set to be the youngest person in history to make this flight solo.
A number of us on the Flight Sim team have met with Barrington several times over the past year or so, but it was my good friend, colleague, and master of the pop-up Mike Singer who really figured out what Microsoft could do to help.
We’re proud to provide his tracking info, and for our logo to make the trip with him. It’s a rare pleasure to meet and do a small part to support the efforts of someone with a great idea, and the courage and dedication to follow through.
