My name is Oliver O’Halloran and I am currently undertaking my pre-tertiary studies in Hobart, Tasmania.
When I first started flying back in early-2014, I was inspired by Ryan Campbell’s flight around the world. He set a world record for the youngest pilot to circumnavigate the world, solo in a single engine aircraft at the age of 19. I was really taken back by the thought of a crazy idea becoming a reality – I got to work.
In May of this year, I will be flying around Australia solo, unassisted, in a single engine aircraft, to show that no dream is impossible. At the same time, conducting school visits in order to spread the journey’s mission and show people my own age about pathways in aviation. The money that we are raising will be going towards the essentials for this flight to happen. The key components requiring funding are:
- Aircraft hire fees
- Transport on the ground
- Safety protocol costs
- Along with other various essentials
The money raised through this campaign with make an astronomical difference towards the safety and efficiency of the trip, evidently making a significant impact on other students lives. I hope that with your support we can inspire my generation to get out into the world and accomplish amazing things.
Thank you for your time and I hope you can join me on this journey.
