Mason Andrews is an 18-year-old Louisiana Tech student from Monroe, Louisiana.

It's his first time at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh and he's looking to make it a memorable one.

Andrews will leave Tuesday morning to begin a 38 day trip around the world to try to break the World Record as the youngest person to circumnavigate around the globe.

Andrews will be documenting his adventures on his Instagram and Facebook pages, but he also wants to make a difference by collecting money to benefit a camp that works with kids with special needs. He said he hopes to raise money for a great cause, break a record and have some fun doing it.
