The Dash
An around the world record is the total time for the flight from take-off to landing at the initial departure airport. All ground time is included with the flight time. The current westbound record was set in May 1988 in a Beechcraft Bonanza and is 54.6mph. The Route page has more details, but in a nut shell, only 9 stops will be made for refueling. All sleeping and eating will be done in the plane in shifts. With favorable winds and quick turn-arounds at each ground stop, the new record should be over 140 mph. That 's around the world in a single engine plane in 7 days.
