Solo 17 Flight Around Australia


My name is Oliver O'Halloran and I'm 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. While also doing school visits and talking to people my age about aviation. The money that we are raising will be going towards the essentials for this flight to happen. The key parts that require fundraising are:
   • Aircraft hire fees
   • Fuel
   • Accommodation
   • Transport on the ground
   • Safety protocols
   • And various other costs

The money raised through this campaign with make an astronomical difference towards the safety, efficiency and will hopefull make 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 anything.

Thank you for your time and I hope you can join me on this journey. 

     - Ollie
