The flight will take place in spring 2012 and is currently in the planning stages. On his blog Felix explained why he chose to fly for AMREF, saying, "They don't squander donated aid on superfluous commodities, instead, they create affordable and sustainable healthcare where it is needed most - they provide not only a service to the people but an education."
As a pilot himself, Felix appreciates the unique and essential service that AMREF's air ambulance service, the Flying Doctors provide. He has dedicated his flight to his late grandfather who was WW2 bomber command veteran.
