Lachie currently in Sri Lanka
He is now 2/3 of the way around the World.
This has been a a amazing journey so far and I am realising how huge this has become and how many people Lachie has actually touched or influenced
Today I met a Romanian guy in London who is fascinated by this journey and is sharing with all his friends back home... Met some kids in Heathrow airport now following the journey and taking the story back to their class mates in Hong Kong
It is an amazing story but it still needs funding to allow Lachie to land back at home debt free and we are nearly there with only about 20000 still needed
Please be part of this inspirational journey and contribute funds or contribute a little more . Thanks !

Lachlan Smart is now half way around the world on his quest to break the world record as the "Youngest Pilot to circumnavigate the earth in a single engine aircraft"
So far he has been safe and had great reception as he sends his message of setting high goals and achieving success. He has been loved and followed by so many including receiving "Keys to the city " in Niagara Falls in the USA
This journey is an amazing feat through 20 countries and this week Lachlan arrives into the UK where he will reach out to universities and cadets to speak. However the accomodation and fuel has been more costly than anticipated and he really needs some extra funding support to complete this journey without debt. Please consider assisting his journey so that he comes home without the weight of financial burden. Support Lachie on this inspirational journey and see his progress on the website or Facebook
A young man touching lives and leading our youth.

Only five weeks to departure and all is going well with much of the funding secure.
The "Half Round Australia Trip" was a great success and demonstrates Lachie's readiness to complete this record.
We really need help though with raising the last funding.
This Young Man is seriously influencing youth and leading people to success - your support of him reaches far more than just this flight - Thanks!
Funding still needed but progress good!
