Geneva, Switzerland, 3 March 2005 -Scouts around the world are proud of the new records set by Steve Fossett with GlobalFlyer, which displayed the Scout emblem on the cockpit. Scouting has a special place among the sponsors’ emblems because of Scouting’s importance in his personal development. “Each record I set is like I have earned a new Scout badge. I was a Scout when I climbed my first mountain,” Steve said.
Today, Steve is an elected member of the World Scout Committee, the board of the World Scout Organization which includes more than 28-million members – girls and boys – worldwide.
“Steve has demonstrated that self confidence can take one far, to continue to explore the limits of science, technology and human character,” said Dr. Marie-Louise Correa, Chairman of the World Scout Committee. “This is more than just a new record by Steve Fossett and a former Scout, it opens new horizons in aeronautics and how we view the world.”
