World Record Setting Pilot Moves to Wyoming
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 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, 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.

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 fly around western Wyoming just for the fly 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 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 destination," says Matt.
