One Pi­lot team makes the Usha­ia2usa short­list

Pilot - - NOTES -

The Vin­tage Air Rally from Ushuaia at the south­ern most tip of South Amer­ica to Sun ’n Fun in Florida next spring is set to be the ad­ven­ture of a life­time for the fif­teen crews lucky enough to make the fi­nal se­lec­tion. Oc­ca­sional Pi­lot con­trib­u­tor Char­lie Huke and his wife Anna have made the short­list, and we wish them ev­ery suc­cess in their ap­pli­ca­tion.

Char­lie and Anna’s plan is to take their Stampe G-AYCK, fly­ing some 9,200 miles through nine­teen coun­tries as well as cross­ing the Car­ribbean via Cuba. “A truly epic flight if ever there were one,” says Char­lie. To find out more — and sup­port Char­lie and Anna in their en­deav­our — search ‘Vin­tageair­rally’ on Face­book and other so­cial me­dia.
