what Mr Fakhr Alam trying to do here ? attempting to fly solo around the globe with least solo hours ? surfed the Mission Parwaaz links but did not find any detailed information about his childhood desire.
He has just flown few solo hours , no mentioning of which pilot licence he holds . Under which country,s aviation law he is going to do that , FAA, EASA, CAA Pakistan or any other country,s instructor is not going to sign his logbook by sending him to that long cross country. Nether any aircraft renter will rent him an aircraft to do so .

If Mr Fakhr Alam is not a certified pilot by any country he should read some aviation laws about solo cross country requirements.

At least private pilot licence is required to do so, or may be I did understand the advertisement.
Airplane is flown with brain not with stick and rudder.

Sponsors need to be careful and do proper research before spending their money for such adventures.

Fakhr-e-Alam set to fly around the world in 28 days

LAHORE
Renowned pop-singer Fakhr-e-Alam is set to make a record by soaring through the skies as he embarks on a world tour calling it Mission Parwaaz.

Three years ago, Fakhr-e-Alam announced his love for flying and aircraft. However, after a lot of hard work and fortitude, the 42-year-old unveiled that he is now one step closer to achieving his dream.

Taking to Twitter, Alam made the announcement and wrote, “Dear all I am happy to report to you all today that after 3 years of a lot of hard work & persistence MissionParwaaz my attempt to circumnavigate the globe is finally happening. If I succeed I will become the 1st Pakistani in the history of the world to do so.”

The former chairman of Sindh Censor Board will be getting on board the single-engine Pilatus PC 12NG stationed at Clear Waters Florida in the US.

“Mission Parwaaz is about a childhood dream realised decades later by sheer passion and dedication. It is one man’s dream to bring pride and glory to his country and its people. It’s a journey with many hurdles, disappointments overcome by self belief and persistence,” the singer states on his official website.

Fakhr-e-Alam spent most of his childhood dreaming to be an air force pilot. Yet fate had other things in store for him. After almost 25 years in show business as a musician, singer, actor and entertainer. He finally realised his childhood dream to be a pilot when in the year 2015 he got his private pilot license in Florida, US.

The same year he announced that he will attempt to circumnavigate the globe in a single engine aircraft. But with only less than 100 hours logged it was a huge task to get this mission off the ground. Three years later he is finally on his way.

Still not able to understand what this mission is about. Some extraordinary route, some special aircraft, some new aeronautical feat?
Hopping from airport to airport in a high performance turboprop only needs a deep pocket!

Exactly, I guess it’s nothing less than a show off stint 🤔
