[PHOTO] History Made As Nigerian Pilot Becomes First African To Fly Solo Around The World

Ademilola “Lola” Odujinrin

Ademilola “Lola” Odujinrin has become the first African pilot in history to fly solo around the world.
The Nigerian who works for Air Djibouti completed the final leg of his historic journey Wednesday afternoon, March 29 landing safely at Washington Dulles International Airport.
The pilot has completed the entire circumnavigation in a Cirrus SR22, stopping in more than
15 countries on five continents, returning to Washington DC, where his journey began back in September.
The flight is part of Project Transcend, a foundation which aims to inspire young people to achieve their goals, regardless of their personal circumstances.
Ademilola says: “Ever since I was a child, I dreamed of one day flying around the world. We have a responsibility to lead by example and follow our dreams. I want African children to think: ‘I can do this too!’”
I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Air Djibouti’s Chairman, Aboubaker Omar Hadi, and Cardiff Aviation’s Chairman, Bruce Dickinson, who have supported me throughout this journey. Without them, this would not have been possible.”
