He did it! Christoph Strasser, Ambassador of the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation, has won the Race Around Austria, which challenged its contestants with a distance of 2,200 kilometers and an altitude of 28,000 meters. Not only did he win, he also achieved it in the record time of 3 days, 15 hours and 24 minutes.
Fourteen 4-seater sports aircrafts and a 14-seater Cessna Caravan were able to take off with about 500 children and adolescents in need together with their families on this special day which is recurring every year to help take their minds off their daily routines and worries. Once again the aid organisation “Stunde des Herzens” was there coordinating and catering for the flight guests in a professional manner, while 50 pilots were taking off in aircrafts nearly every minute to bring joy to the young participants.
