 ABOUT THIS MISSION 

What is this mission about?

One-eyed pilot, Shinji Maeda, has been inspiring people to pursue their dreams through his motivational speech and has reached out to thousands of people in the U.S. and Japan. This time, he decided to fly around the world in his own airplane to deliver an important message to many more people across the world. 

Why Earthrounder?

When Shinji was 18 years old, he lost his eyesight in one eye. He had to face the fact that by law he could never pursue his dream of being a pilot in Japan. However, he made it happen. 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 realized that sharing his journey and motivating others to achieve their dreams became his true passion. Since 2008, he kept delivering motivational speeches in the US and Japan by flying on a commercial jet. But this time, he wanted to do something different. He decided to fly around the world in his own airplane to deliver his message to many more people across the world. Impossible? He would say "No, not at all. I AM POSSIBLE and THIS IS POSSIBLE!"
