He stated that the pilot had on Oct. 14 embarked on the second leg of his historic journey in a Cirrus aircraft from North Weald airfield in the UK.

He noted that “having already completed a transatlantic crossing from Washington D.C. in the light single-propeller aircraft, the Nigerian aviator is now heading to Malta.

“He will then head on to Djibouti, where he will fly as a commercial pilot for the national flag carrier.

“From there, Odujinrin will continue around the rest of the world, through India and Australia, and intends to set a further aviation milestone with the fastest U.S. coast-to-coast flight in a single-prop aircraft.”

According to him, the flight is part of `Project Transcend’, a foundation aimed at inspiring young people to achieve their goals, regardless of their personal circumstances.

The airline boss then quoted Odujinrin as saying “fewer than 115 people have completed a solo circumnavigation of the globe by air, and it has been my dream since my youth to join them.

“I hope to set a world first and inspire a generation of people in Africa and beyond.”  (NAN)
