Chloe Familton is flying high. The Australian teen just returned from an adventure. She circumnavigated Australia in a single-engine plane.

The 18-year-old pilot left Cessnock Aerodrome in New South Wales on November 13. The 14,000-kilometre trip took six weeks.

Flying lessons

Chloe’s love of flying was inspired by her grandfather. He was an air force navigator. She grew up hearing his stories.
