I;m confused.  Isn't "WIDE2-1" the path?

Subject: [aprssig] Low Alt aircraft path

I have a ham friend with a MT-AIO that he wants to use in his airplane. 
  He states he usually operates at 1-2,000 Ft AGL.  We have discussed 
the issues that have come up with high altitude balloons.  He 
understands to NOT have WIDE1-1 in the path for this application.

His research is pointing him to WIDE2-1.  Given the number of Digi's in 
the area, I wonder how no path would work.

One of his concerns is that some of the small airports he uses away from 
home are in areas without Digi coverage at ground level and thinks that 
no path would not allow him to get a packet out when landed and parked.

I have suggested programming each configuration available to him with a 
WIDE2-1 and no path.

Comments, suggestions?

Thanks in advance
