Come and wave Liam off at 9am for a 9:30am departure!

Local teen takes aim at world record

On Saturday 1 September 2018 at 9.00am, 16-year-old Sunshine Coast teenager Liam Morey will embark on a journey of a lifetime - the goal to break the World Record for the youngest unassisted complete circumnavigation of Australia by aircraft. Upon the successful completion of this flight Liam will have beaten the current record holder by nearly 12 months. An incredible achievement for a 16-year-old local.

Liam will fly a Bristell Light Sport Aircraft, supplied by Anderson Aviation, over 16,000km around Australia making some 30 stops along the way over a three week period.

Liam’s aim is to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields to high school students and deliver a message of youth empowerment.

The departure will take place at Sunshine Coast Aero Club, 16 Friendship Drive (North), Marcoola – within the Sunshine Coast Airport precinct. This will serve as the official departure point for Liam’s endeavour.
