Young Fresno pilot enters the record books


At a luncheon hosted by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central California today, I had the honor of introducing and presenting an honorary Congressional resolution to Jack Wiegand, an extraordinary young man from Fresno who recently became the youngest person to fly solo around the world. During the event, the 21 year old shared photo slides from his trip, which lasted 59 days and covered 21,000 nautical miles across twelve countries. Congratulations to Jack on his incredible accomplishment.
