Mason’s MedCamps Mission departed from Monroe Regional Airport in Monroe, LA on 22 July 2018 with a wonderful sendoff from the community and Louisiana Tech University! This began a 40 day +/- around the world odyssey flying across or landing in over 20 Countries or Islands! He will be flying solo in a single engine 1976 Piper Lance PA32R-300 aircraft specially modified to carry 160 gallons of extra fuel, giving him a range of over 2205 nautical miles without refueling with an additional reserve of 2.92 hrs of flight time. The longest leg of the journey will be 2150 nautical miles on the downhill run from Sapporo Japan to Dutch Harbor in the Alaskan Aleutian Island Chain. This will require 14 hours of flight over the North Pacific Ocean! He will cross a great deal of water on the journey, including the North Atlantic, Mediterranean, Red, and Arabian Seas, before crossing the Indian Ocean, and North Pacific!
