Eight pilots took off Saturday from Cessna’s Independence plant to begin traveling the country in the 162 Skycatcher.
The goal is to promote flying and Cessna’s light sport aircraft.
Each pilot, graduates of university flying programs around the country, has a separate region.
They will reunite at the Experimental Aviation Association’s AirVenture convention in Oshkosh, Wisc., in late July.
