President/CEO to Visit Sydney (YSSY) on Around the World Flight
Captain Larry Horton and I are arriving at 2300Z (0900 local 7/10/2020) in Sydney as the next leg of our Around the World flights. We are flying the King Air 350ER on the 25th leg of an around-the-world flight that began in Denver just after New Years in 2019. In planning since mid 2018, we have been flying at least once a month. We are visiting Australia as a second trip south of the equator as the charter requires.
We are looking forward to the visit. We will be parking at the Charter terminal at Sydney.
