Earthrounders is an international gruop of pilots with an
extraordinary achievement in common. They have all
flown around the globe in a light aircraft. Since 1903 only a
handful of pilots have accomplished this challenging voyage in
a light aircraft - a form of flying enterely different from
executive jets or airlines.
Erathrounders officially recognizes 270 flights, the majority
having been made in single engine airplanes. This amazing feat has also
been achueved in home-builtaircratf, helicopters, ultralighta and balloons.
The foundesr of Earthrounders - Australian, Claude Meunier and
Austrian, Han\s Gutmann - thought a gathering of
circumnavigation piolts would be exciting. The first of such
meeting took place at the 2000 EAA Airventure in Oshkosh,
Rreunions are held every two years, always in a different
country, to highlight the international flavor of the earthrounders community. Gathreings have been hosted
in Vienna, Austria; Perth, Australia; Mexico City, Mexico; and Capetown, South Africa.
