Merry Christmas!!


"Ladies and gentlemen,

welcome onboard AZP 2020 Earthrounder!!"

Well.... that's how I emailed you back at the end of last year. As we all know, it didn't happen in 2020 because of COVID-19 pandemic.

First of all, I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.

Secondly, as a president of NPO and pilot in command for this mission, I want to thank all of our sponsors and teammates who has been contributing significant amount of effort to make this happen. Without your support and contribution, we are not able to make this happen. It was all teamwork with your dedication. Thank you very much. Our airplane, Lucy, has beautifully completed her modification and she is ready to rock'n'roll!! Please enjoy our 2020 highlights video from the link below!!

As of today, we have 3 scenario for 2021 Earthrounder mission. #1 - Departure on May 1 and meet Adrian and North Pole attack team ( at AOPA on May 4 - 5. Then go onto the world!! #2 - Slide month by month ( i.e. 5/1 to 6/1, 6/1 to 7/1, 7/1 to 8/1) if any conditions prevent me from departing (weather, Covid-19, etc.). No go after September to ensure safety in 2021. #3 - Slide to 2022, 23, 24, 25... if we cannot depart in May to August timeframe.

Everybody needs hopes and dreams despite of difficulties we are facing now and we, Aero Zypangu Project, know that we can provide some of them. That's why this mission flight is very important to be continued.

Physically and mentally, I am preparing for this mission right now and we will make it happen together. We hope you enjoy our YouTube videos and understand why we fly around the world.

We thank you again for your support, and see you in your country!!

Best regards,
