Trans American Flight

In April of 2009, Dr. Kim Wright fulfilled one of his dreams by flying from Barrow, Alaska, to Key West Florida with his best friend.  As a young man, Dr. Wright was inspired to fly the Trans Continental Route by one of his favorite books, 'Passage of Flight.'  Dr. Wright flew from Anchorage to Barrow, Alaska, where the temperature was negative 20 degrees fahrenheit.  It took five days to complete the trip in a Mooney Bravo; stopping in Ketchikan, Alaska; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Salina, Kansas; before arriving in Key West, Florida where the temperature was 100 degrees warmer than the first stop in Barrow.
