Adventurer of the Year 2016
IN APRIL 2015, PILOT Michael Smith left Melbourne to begin his trip in a Sea-Rey Amphibian aeroplane called “Southern Sun” to loosely follow the Qantas Empire Flying Boat Route of 1938 from Sydney to London. However, on reaching London, Michael decided to continue flying across the North Atlantic, North America, the North Pacific and upon arrival in Longreach on Wednesday, 11 November, became the first person to solo navigate the world using a single-engine flying boat.
