Start 30 day circumnavigation

19 Jun, 2014

Suleman and his 17-year-old son, Haris attempt to break the record for the fastest circumnavigation in a single engine plane with the youngest pilot. They plan to take 30 days and make stops in 21 cities. The Sulemans also hope to raise money for Seeds of Learning, a nonprofit organization that supports education in Pakistan. They raise more than $500,000 before even taking off. Babar, on his son:

I think by the time we get done with this trip, he will be a completely different person. Flying is a lot of planning…it teaches a lot of responsibility. I think from that standpoint it’ll be good for him to go in and learn how to be more responsible.
