Update: Congress Recognizes Barrington Irving

Encourage youth to pursue careers in aviation.

Congress Recognizes Barrington Irving
Pilot Barrington Irving recently received national recognition on from the U.S. House of Representatives. Irving is the pilot we previously featured while flying his historic trip around the World. His story of inspiration has touched thousands, and for this reason, The U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed a resolution honoring the 23-year-old Miami resident as the youngest person ever recorded to fly around the world solo. The resolution was introduced by U.S. Representatives Alcee L. Hastings (D-Miramar) and Kendrick B. Meek (D-Miami), and encourages the pursuit of more initiatives like Irving's nonprofit organization, Experience Aviation, Inc., which encourages youth and underrepresented groups to pursue careers in aviation.

'Barrington Irving is one of the greatest young heroes of our time,' remarked Representative Hastings. 'His triumph demonstrates that if you reach for the sky, you truly can make it, and in turn, make history. The passage of this resolution is one of many initiatives to come that will reprioritize opportunities in aviation for our youth.'

'When the younger generation is looking for a role model and hero, they need to look no further than Barrington Irving,' said Congressman Meek. 'This young pilot proved that when you dream big dreams and work hard, the extraordinary is possible. I am honored to call Barrington Irving a constituent.'

Irving departed from OpaLocka Executive Airport in OpaLocka, Florida on March 23, 2007 and returned on June 27, 2007. His 24,600 mile flight took him to 27 cities around the world where he met with youth as an ambassador of opportunities in aviation. His most recent honor is serving as Grand Marshall The Junior Orange Bowl Parade, one of Miami's oldest and most well-known traditions. If you are interested in learning more about Barrington Irving, we invite you to watch our our interview with Barrington and a video report courtesy from the Black Digital Network
