Welcome to the official site of the Seattle World Cruiser Project. Celebrating the first circumnavigation of the globe by air.
WORLD FLIGHT UPDATE: APRIL 20th TAKE OFF DATE CANCELLED - START DATE TBD
We are working excitedly and feverishly on all aspects of the flight. Permitting processes in some areas can be complex and lengthy. With that in mind we are in the midst of updating our takeoff date. Delays happen. Safety, reliability, and regulatory jurisdictions guide us in our decisions. We’ll be posting the new takeoff date as soon as we can so stay tuned!
Once the flight begins we’ll be adding regular posts to keep you all up to date on where we are in the world. We’ll be adding more details on events at Sand Point for our departure. If you’d like to help support our efforts please check out our unique fundraising gifts.
Thank you to everyone for their continued support and patience.

Some of our gifts like our “Stowaway Selfie” will no longer be available after April 17th so get order soon to not miss out on this very one-of-a-kind opportunity!
