Every pilot dreams of flying around the world, but few have succeeded. Even in this age of fast, long-range turboprops, the complexity and cost of such a trip is daunting. When flying something like a Beechcraft Bonanza, safety is also a showstopper for many. Unless you're Adrian Eichhorn. This week AOPA Editor in Chief Tom Haines talks to FAA AMT of the Year Eichhorn about his flight around the world. Eichhorn spent years preparing for the trip. Hear about his adventures, and the week's headlines in the latest episode.

    I listened to Adrian Eichhorn's earth rounder story while sitting in my hangar looking at my F33A which flew to Europe and back twice by the previous owner. Being an A&P IA and former DHL Airways Captain with many North Atlantic crossings in a DC-8 I have the highest admiration for Adrian Eichhorn.

    Capt. Harry S.McCarthy accomplished this feat X4 in his RR powered Bonanza 1136Y.
    I have a picture of this aircraft parked in front of the Baghdad,Iraq control tower a couple of years before he died on Sept. 2, 2014. He flew this airplane into more than 170 Countries & US territories since April 2002.
