We first wrote about Lachlan Smart’s bid almost one year ago.

Since then he has gained media interest from most Australian television channels and new media, the latest from ABC.

Lachlan Smart Plane

It is an exciting trip which we originally documented as the air equivalent of Jessica Watson’s circumnavigation in her small yacht in 2009/2010.

Lachlan’sĀ attempt will take around 70 days covering a massive 45,000kms and 24 countries. He will document his journey on his Wings Around The World website, as well as on social media. You can view his trip via LIVE tracker on his website.

Thomson Geer is pleased to provide pro bono legal support to Lachlan on this exciting attempt and look forward to welcoming him home in September 2016!
