A Nigerian pilot who works for Air Djibouti has become the first African pilot in history to fly Solo around the world. 
 
Ademilola Odujinrin completed the final leg of his historic journey Wednesday afternoon, landing safely at Washington Dulles International Airport. 
 
The pilot has completed the entire circumnavigation in a cirrus sr22, stopping in more than 15 countries on five continents, and  returning to Washington DC, where his journey began back in September. 
 
The flight is part of project transcend, a foundation which aims to inspire young people to achieve their goals, regardless of their personal circumstances. 
 
Mr Odujinrin said he had dreamt“,  of flying around the world one day ever since he  was a child.
