Dear Aero Zyoangu Project Supporter
Thank you for your continuing cooperation and support for Aero Zypangu Project. Given the COVID-19 outbreak, we decided to postpone our Earthrounder Mission. We'll announce the new takeoff date once determined. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding of our decision.
One-eyed pilot, Shinji Maeda, will fly around the world to give a motivational speech. He has been carrying an inspirational message out to people and has reached out to thousands of people in the U.S. and Japan.
Now, it’s time to go beyond and deliver this message to many more people across the world. It is happening. We believe it’s possible.

However, he made it happened by overcoming the tragedy. He became a pilot and now he enjoys sharing his love and passion for flying with his student pilots as a flight instructor. He has been carrying an inspirational message out to people and has reached out to thousands of people in the U.S. and Japan.
