Introduction

Written in 1994



The record for two man circumnavigation in an open-cockpit biplane has stood for over 76 years.  To date, no pilot has completed a solo circumnavigation in an open cockpit biplane.  Stearman World Flight was founded to break the existing record and set the solo record for the first time in the history of aviation.  The SWF crew accepts the challenge of this record in the same spirit of adventure as the early aviation pioneers.  Stearman World Flight has and will overcome all obstacles to achieve this historic and exciting goal.  The following information outlines the project from its formation to the present.  We at Stearman World Flight invite you to ride along on what is and will be without question "The World's Greatest Aviation Adventure".
