I took off from Wollongong, Australia on June 30 in a bid to complete an eastbound circumnavigation - A World Record Attempt Flight Around the World.
 
At age 19 I aim to become the youngest pilot to fly solo around the world, taking the title from American pilot Jack Wiegand. Mr Wiegand, who completed his flight on June 29 2013, is 21-years-old.
 
By gaining the Guinness World Records certification and the FAI’s Diploma of Circumnavigation we will be certain to receive the recognition of a true around the world flight.
