In July of 2021, Travis Ludlow broke the Guinness World Record to become the youngest person to fly solo around the world in a single-engine aircraft at the age of 18 (and 149 days). This was not an easy feat – Travis spent many hours practicing and preparing for this adventure, which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
During his flight, Travis relied on Iridium satellite devices and real-time aircraft tracking from partner Spidertracks to ensure he stayed safe and connected. Check out this conversation with Travis and Dan Mercer, Iridium’s Vice President and General Manager, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia to learn more about Travis’ journey!
