Have you ever wanted to fly around the world?
Those lucky pilots who have held a reunion before SUN ’n FUN began and hosted a variety of forums throughout the airshow, according to Bob Gannon, chairman of the Earthrounders 2012 reunion. To become a member of the Earthrounders, a pilot must have flown a single- or twin-engine plane around the world.
Gannon, who has flown around the world twice, said the group’s reunion attracted 53 “Earthrounders” from Spain, Germany, Australia, Russia, Papua New Guinea, Austria, Switzerland, Brazil, Mexico, England, Canada, and many from the United States.
“This is truly an international fly-in,” Gannon said. “We have attendees who recently returned from an Around the World flight, while one of our attendees recently celebrated his 87th birthday and is getting ready for his third Round The World flight from our reunion.”
The group’s website is a great resource for pilots contemplating an around the world flight. It includes information on how to plan a flight, a message board, stories of other Earthrounders, and more.
