EARTHROUNDER MISSION HAS BEEN ACCOMPOLISHED.
A one-eyed pilot, Shinji Maeda, completed his mission to fly around the world to inspire more people to pursue their dreams. There is nothing impossible - He delivered this message to people worldwide and showed how to change the "impossible" to "I'm possible."
"If I can do it, you can do it too"
When he was 18 years old, he lost his right eyesight because of a car accident. He had faced the fact that he could never pursue his dream of becoming a pilot in Japan because of the law. However, he made it happen by overcoming the tragedy. He became a pilot here in the U.S. and now he enjoys sharing his love and passion for flying with his student pilots as a flight instructor. He has been sending an inspirational message to people and has reached out to thousands of people in the U.S. and Japan.

"I approached Shinji at Aero Zypangu because I wanted my students to become optimistic about their future and to realize that there are many possible career paths in front of them.
