The ambitious Travis Ludlow has covered over 25,000 miles alone, in a single-engine aircraft, in the space of just six weeks, in his bid to achieve a Guinness World Record.
The gruelling expedition saw him spend up to eight-hour days operating his Cessna 172 N5010 aircraft, sometimes travelling as far as 1,000 miles in one day without stopping.
Travis had to cover at least 24,520 miles to break the world record - a distance he has already managed to surpass as he flew the 1,300 miles from Donegal in Ireland to Gibraltar in southern Spain.
He said: "Landing in Gibraltar was a dream come true. It's somewhere I've always wanted to fly... It was also the same day I reached a total of 24,972 miles flown overall - which is 71 miles more than the circumference of the Earth at the equator. So it was two major milestones in one day".
The teen even managed to capture his journey on video, and the views are incredible.
