ADEMILOLA ODUJINRIN – First African pilot to fly solo around the world


After landing safely at the Washington Dulles International Airport, United States, Nigerian Pilot, Ademilola “Lola” Odujinrin, has made history as the first African pilot in history to fly solo around the world.

Starting out in September 2016 in Washington D.C., Ademilola finished the entire circumnavigation in a Cirrus SR22, stopping in more than 15 countries on five continents, and returning to D.C.


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 has logged over 4,000 hours as a commercial Boeing 737 pilot since earning his pilot licence in 2011.
