London to Sydney Microlight Flight
In 2007 Miles achieved another astounding world record undertaking a 55-day, 21,500 kilometer microlight flight more than half-way around the world from London to Sydney Australia.
The venture was undertaken in support of “Seeing is Believing”, the Standard Charter Bank’s initiative to rid the world of curable blindness.
To make the flight possible Miles relied on revolutionary speech-output technology and was supported by Richard Meredith-Hardy and Brian Milton, his obligatory sighted co-pilots, along with project manager, Jon Cook.
