This is causing quite a stir in the microlight comunity across the globe but does not seem to have been reported much here in the U.K. Dave Sykes is a paraplegic microlight pilot who is flying solo from Rufforth Airfield which is just outside York, England, to Sydney Australia, all to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. His progress can be tracked online from a link on his website

http://www.soloflightglobal.com/

And the story so far can be read on www.microlightforum.com

I take my hat off to this guy and only hope there is a book to follow.
