In October 2016,a report was made about Ademilola "Lola" Odujinrin;

the Nigerian pilot whose lifelong ambition

was to become the first African pilot in history

to fly around the world solo. . Fast forward to March 2017 and he has

achieved the seemingly impossible mission.



Odujirin who works for Air Djibouti completed the final leg of his

historic journey on Wednesday afternoon, 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 and returning to

Washington DC, where his journey began back in September 2016.



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!'"
