World aviation traveller and Wyoming resident Matt Guthmiller recently flew his two fighter jet trainers back to his home base in Western Wyoming.

There was a quick fuel stop in Cheyenne, Wyoming along the way.

These jets provide high-performance fun but are also thirsty.

Cheyenne and Casper, Wyoming are often used as fuel stops for anyone flying cross country that wants to avoid Colorado's busy air space and high fuel prices.

If you are an aviation buff you enjoy the entire video.

If you just want to watch the Cheyenne, Wyoming landing and takeoff after refuelling, then scroll to 19:45 in the video.

They approach from the east, heading west, giving a wonderful view of Wyoming's capital city.

You'll hear him talking with Cheyenne's tower, requesting an overhead and left teardrop decent.

That means he needs to lose some altitude.

So he will fly over the center of the runway and then gently turn in a large teardrop shape to line up with the runway.

As he is doing this you'll get a great view of Cheyenne.

If you live there, try to see if you can spot your house.

We bought another fighter jet in Estonia as I attempt to figure out how to race at the final Reno Air Races.

Wait, what?

Back in February, I told you about a Wyoming pilot, already famous for something he did at a very young age.

His YouTube page about aviation and his flying adventures shot him to fame.

Then he moved to Wyoming where he bought a house in a neighborhood built around an airport.

So, what next for Matt Guthmiller?

How about buying a jet fighter trainer?

Yeah, that sounds like fun.

But after spending less than a year flying his  Aero L-39 Albatros high-performance jet trainer he has decided, yet again, to step it up.

How about buying a second one and training for an air race?

This jet is designed and produced in Czechoslovakia by Aero Vodochody. It is the most widely used jet trainer in the world.

The plane is so good it has also flown combat missions in a light-attack role.

These videos were recorded a few months back, so we are still catching on to what happened.

In the video below you can watch Matt and a friend leaving Wyoming, early in the morning, to go pick up the new jet aircraft.

The next video will be of him checking out the new plane.

He has not posted any videos of the Reno Air Races.

Reno is no longer hosting those races and there is a chance they could be moved to Casper, Wyoming.

Matt keeps his planes at his home in Alpine Wyoming, a neighborhood built just for pilots who want to keep their planes at home, like your car in your garage.

I'm sure we won't be able to keep both jet fights at his house.

He really doesn't have room for the first one, plus his Bananza. 

In the video below Matt flies with the commander of TOP GUN!

No, his call sign is not MAVERICK!

Still, what an experience! Matt learns a lot from a world master of the jet flying craft.

You can't get better lessons than this.

Let's back up.


Matt Guthmiller was the youngest pilot to fly solo around the world.  

He continues to fly today, taking his YouTube audience on amazing adventures with 197 thousand of subscribers to his page.

Matt has chosen to live in Wyoming in an airport community on the western side of the state.

Born in Aberdeen South Dakota, Matt Guthmiller has always wanted to fly.

Now that dream is part of his everyday life.

Matt received his private pilot certificate on his 17th birthday, has gone on to earn his commercial pilot certificate and numerous ratings, has flown dozens of aircraft, and logged more than 2700 hours in the air (500 when he started the trip).

On May 31, 2014, Matt set out on a 44.5-day trip of over 30,000 miles in an attempt to become the youngest person to ever circumnavigate the globe on a solo flight.

MIT Student To Become Youngest Person To Fly Around World Solo: the rising MIT sophomore will to take off from San Diego, California, in a single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza and head east — and then keep going.

He'll make stops along the way, but his goal is to become the youngest person to fly solo around the world. (WBUR BOSTON).

What does a young man do after he's flown around the globe, solo?  

He now owns this beautiful home in a community built for flyers around this airport called Alpine Park Wyoming.

This means those of us who follow his adventures get to see more Western and Teton flying.

That is about as beautiful as it gets. 

In this next video, he takes one of his pilot neighbors for a flight around western Wyoming just for the flight of two private pilots flying over western Wyoming.

Do you need any other excuse?

Matt's Youtube page is well worth subscribing to and exploring.

It is filled with flying adventures and interesting places that he has gone to that you might have never seen.

"Now, I'm sharing all kinds of aviation adventures with you! Ride along as we explore the world from the air and get a close-up look at some of aviation's best flight experiences and destinations," says Matt.
