I echo that.

But I am intrigued as to how (the why is obvious, its for "the youngest" tag) its being done right now with all the restrictions that are supposed to be in place... and if they might carry over to other GA flights...

I can't help feeling that the richness of the experience (to say nothing of the comprehensive photo record) will be very different from just blitzing across everywhere as fast as possible.


I think the reasoning for the blitzing in this instance is he only has a certain amount of time to complete it in order to break the record and be the youngest ever person to do it.

The original plan was to set off last year, but of course that was put back for reasons only too easy to work out. I must admit I don't know if the route was any different when originally planned when he had much more time, but I imagine it wouldn't have been quite so much of a zoom around.

Yes I know. It's different strokes for different folks, I know, but if you break the record and you're the youngest ever to do it, so what?

Other than bragging rights?
