Matt Around The World
Matt Guthmiller has spent his life looking for fresh challenges to tackle and new obstacles to overcome. This spring he will attempt his latest and greatest when he starts on the first leg of his One Month, 30,000 mile journey, which will take him everywhere from New York City to London, Greece, the Middle East, Hawaii and more, as he seeks to Become the Youngest Pilot Ever to Fly Solo Around the World.
“Nothing is Impossible for an Aviator” says Captain Guthmiller.
“And I’ve never been the kind of person to just hang around and wait for great things to happen. If you really want to achieve something great you have to go out and get it.”
His love of flying dates back even to before the hundreds of hours he logged on flight simulator games as a child, but the impetus for this latest adventure came when, while browsing the internet for fresh flights to attempt, he came across an AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) article about California’s Jack Wiegand, who set the record last spring by circumnavigating the globe at the age of 21.
“I immediately thought ‘I can do that,’” said Guthmiller.
“Setting a record is exciting, but records are made to be broken,” says Guthmiller.
“My real goal is to inspire other young people to attempt things of a similar magnitude.
That’s what I hope to accomplish with this flight.”

The bespectacled teen is set to cover 30,000 N Miles ( 50,000 kilometres ) during his Month Long Journey, Making 30 stops across 15 Countries.
He hopes to set a Guinness World Record by landing on July 8 in California, when he will be 16 days younger than Ryan Campbell of Australia, the current record holder.
Campbell was 19 years, seven months, and 25 days old when he arrived south of Sydney in 2013.
With more than 500 flying hours under his belt, Guthmiller has already zipped across the United States, Europe and the Mediterranean Sea, down through Egypt and onto the Gulf since he took flight in San Diego on May 31.
Guthmiller is raising money through sponsors and plans to donate all proceeds to Code.org, a non-profit organisation that pushes for computer science and programming to be taught in schools.
"The goal is to raise USD $350,000. Cost of the trip is about $245,000. So I am looking at (donating) about $100,000 Captain Matt Guthmiller
