Lawmakers Honor the Youngest Pilot to Circle the Globe

April 16th, 2008 by flanews

The youngest person to every fly around the world also happens to be a Floridian. Barrington Irving was honored in the state Senate Wednesday. Irving is 23. Last March he flew 26,000 miles around the world. Irving had some heart stopping moments due to dangerous weather conditions and said its a miracle he survived the trip.

God, honestly, God brought me through it because there are some points I should have been dead with some of the stuff Id been through, said Irving.

Irving shattered the record for youngest pilot to circle the globe. The previous record holder was 37 years old.
