An Inspirational Message
Travis' early reservations about his around the world flight were not due to any concept of failure, that never entered his head, his concern was purely down to the attention he would get when he succeeded. You see, his dream of flying around the world was not for fame or recognition but purely his love of flying and exploration.
Thankfully he now accepts that his experiences, before and during his record-breaking adventure, has given him something worth sharing with others. No longer shy or humble, he now does that with passion and sincerity.
His story is of struggle and adversity in achieving his goals; from the hostility of his first flight school to the trials and tribulations of sponsorships and the delays caused by Covid and, he had many obstacles to overcome before he eventually took-off at 18. Then during his actual flight around the world, Travis had two near fatal incidents and was threatened with arrest and imprisonment.
Travis talks about the difficulties of getting his dream off the ground, literally… how he raising half a million dollars and flew 26,759 miles in just 43 days, to beat the world record by just 12 days.
His stories will inspire and hopefully motivate others to believe in themselves, so that they too can achieve the extraordinary.
