October 2015 saw Laurel and Tom Lippert join us once again, for a Fly-Back-Inn tour of New Zealand. We’d originally met in November 2004 when, as journalist and photographer respectively, Laurel and Tom experienced Flyinn, and wrote an article for Pilot Getaways Magazine. Our common interests in all things Aviation, and propensity to maintain a humorous outlook on life when at all possible, meant we quickly became firm friends.
‘You Can Fly!” is just one of many publications Laurel and Tom have been involved with, and it is one they hold dear to their hearts. Both are Pilots with infectious enthusiasm that naturally encourages anyone with dreams to fly. This, coupled with a sound aviation background plus combined journalist and photography skills meant ‘You Can Fly!’ was the perfect publication for them to be involved with.
Flyinn is very proud to share that many non-pilot guests have returned home with a renewed vision of what flying can be. From this, some have even embarked on their PPL or companion flight training. One email from Flyinn has always seen Laurel and Tom kindly post a copy of ‘You Can Fly!’ to these kindred spirits.
Now we have our own signed copies to present. Thank you Tom and Laurel!
