About the Global Flight for STEM

Shaesta Waiz is not only a record setter, but an inspirational icon. During her global flight, she visited 22 countries to meet young girls and boys and inspire them to pursue STEM and aviation careers.

In 2017, Dreams Soar launched a global flight around the world to introduce Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education and Aviation careers to young girls and boys. The flight was piloted by Dreams Soar's Founder and President, Shaesta Waiz, the youngest woman in history to fly solo around the world in a single engine aircraft. Waiz flew a single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza A36, 'Dream Catcher' specially-equipped for the solo global flight journey.

With support of the Dreams Soar team on the ground, and with sponsorship from many individual and corporate donors, Shaesta flew over 24,000 nautical miles across five continents, making 30 stops and visiting 22 countries, inspiring over 3,000 youth through outreach events worldwide. The 2017 Global Flight for STEM was just the beginning of Dreams Soar's mission to inspire the next generation, especially young children in underprivileged regions.
