Dear Aero Zypangu Project supporters,
Thank you for your continuing cooperation and support for Aero Zypangu Project.
As coronavirus continues to affect our lives, the world is quickly responding to take various measures to prevent further infection. Yesterday, March 19, the U.S. State Department announced that US citizens should not travel outside the country and that citizens abroad should return home or stay in place. Other countries have announced, without prior notice, the closure of their borders and temporary bans on foreign nationals’ entry. Under the circumstances, overseas travel has become complex and unpredictable.
Due to the foregoing situations, Aero Zypangu Project has decided to postpone the takeoff date of May 1, 2020, from Everett, WA to fly around the world under its Earth Rounder Project. We have now set the new departure date for May 1, 2021. It was a very difficult decision; however, your health and safety are the most important, and we respect each country’s measures to fight against the further spread of the virus. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding of our decision.
It is our mission to provide dreams and hopes to people, to think together to overcome challenges, and to move forward to the future. Aero Zypangu Project will overcome this difficult time and continue our preparation for takeoff. Thank you again for your continuing support. Please stay safe and healthy.
Our sponsors help us to make this impossible mission possible.
We are forever grateful.
