Every year around this time, Dr. Fischer comes to the southwest to enjoy some flying. This year he has chosen to fly with Sawyer Aviation, bringing along Rainer, the son of his best friend. Originally from Germany and the UK, both men are enjoying the good weather. Dr. Fischer is quite familiar with the Sawyer Aviation Turbo 182 Skylane, as he has the same plane back home.

They will fly throughout the southwest, being sure to see all the highlights as they venture state to state, living the pilot’s dream. Their journey, so far, has taken them to Long Beach for the AOPA summit, Catalina, Santa Barbara, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Albuquerque and Las Cruces.

Follow them live on their journey!
