Barrington Irving completes his flight around the world and returns home to get kids as excited about aviation as he is.

In 2007, Barrington Irving became the first African American and the youngest person at that time to pilot a plane around the world solo. When he eventually landed back at the Miami airport where he started, Barrington began to use his achievement as a way to reach young people. His educational foundation, Experience Aviation, works to "lift today's youth to a higher plane."
