A Nigerian pilot Ademilola Odujinrin has become the first African pilot in history to fly solo around the world. He completed the final leg of his historic journey on Wednesday afternoon, landing safely at Washington Dulles International Airport.

According to VON, the pilot completed the entire journey in a Cirrus SR22, stopping in more than 15 countries on five continents, then returning to Washington DC, where his journey began back in September.

The flight was part of Project Transcend, a foundation which aims to inspire young people to achieve their goals, regardless of their personal circumstances.

“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!'” Odujinrin said.

“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,” he added.









Aboubaker Omar Hadi said:

By supporting initiatives like Lola’s flight around the world, Air Djibouti hopes to inspire a new generation of pilots in Africa and help to pave the way for the aviation industry to thrive in the region.

The benefits will be felt within the region, as this will encourage more intra-African trade and sustainable economic development.

With the commencement of the Single African Air Transport Market set for June 2017, air travel in the continent is positioned to grow rapidly and become a key contributor to the region’s economic and social development.

YORUBA MAN

I CONGRATULATE THE YORUBA MAN TOO AND I BELIEVE WHEN ODUDUWA REPUBLIC IS ACTUALIZED YOU GUYS WILL PRODUCE MORE PILOTS  AND MORE,  BUT ALSO FOLLOW ME CONGRATULATE THIS BIAFRAN MAN ( PHILIP EMEAGWALI ) THAT  MADE IMPOSIBILITY POSSIBLE IN THE WORLD WE ARE LIVING TODAY..AND MANY PEOPLE DONT SEE HIM ON NEWS .

MAYBE SOME PEOPLE HERE DONT KNOW WHAT IS SUPER COMPUTER ..I WILL LIVE THE EXPLANATION HERE:( A supercomputer is a computer with a high level of computing performance compared to a general-purpose computer. Performance of a supercomputer is measured in floating-point operations per second (FLOPS) instead of million instructions per second (MIPS). As of 2015, there are supercomputers which can perform up to quadrillions of FLOPS. )

SO THIS BIAFRAN REFUGEE ALSO PLAYED A VERY IMPORTANT ROLE TO MAKE THE YORUBA MAN AND THE INTIRE WORLD ENJOY THERE JORNEY FLYING AROUND THE GLOBE , AND HE EVEN PLAYED A STRONG ROLE FOR THE NASA TO BE ABLE TO CALCULATE THE JORNEY ,MOVEMENT AND CONTROL OF THE ROCKETS THAT GOES OUTSIDE THE PLANET .....INFACT YOU ARE THERE USING THE COMPUTER & COMUNICATING AT REAL TIME...THANKS TO HIM(( PHILIP EMEAGWALLI:  NWACHINEKE TERE MMAMU NA ALA BIAFRA .
