Welcome to the official site of the Seattle World Cruiser Project. Celebrating the first circumnavigation of the globe by air.
We're very excited to announce that The Cruiser recently took its first steps under its own power! This is a major milestone for the project. These taxi tests are paving the way for our first flight. We are also refining plans for a Kickstarter campaign which will go live in the near future. We will be posting more details about all of this here so check back often!
2013 saw a lot of great progress that included the first public rollout of the Seattle II. 2014 is already proving to be an equally action packed year as we get closer to our first test flights and continue to refine arrangements for our World Flight.
To usher in the next phase of the project we've decided to give the website a tune up and a fresh coat of paint. As always, we'll continue to post the latest news about the project and alerts for upcoming events. We'll also be expanding the site to include more interesting and fun new features about our project as well as content about the 1924 flight. If this is your first time visiting our site, the three links below offer a great introduction to our project.
In observance of the 90th Anniversary of the historic 1924 flight, you can now track the year to date progress of that journey by clicking the red banner at the top of the page. It will take you to a site created by the National Museum of the Air Force that uses actual reports from the 1924 flight to chronicle the events of each stop around the world.
