New World Record Attempt Concludes at AirVenture 2023

All in a Day’s Work

In 2019, pilot Dan Moore of Johnson City, Tennessee flew to and landed at 92 airports in a single day, thereby setting the world record for the largest number of airports visited by the solo pilot of a fixed-wing aircraft within a 24-hour time-period.

Comes now 2023, and Mr. Moore has again undertaken an effort likely to land him in the record-books.  

By making full-stop landing in thirty U.S. states while on his way from Durant, Oklahoma to the Experimental Aircraft Association’s AirVenture 2023 event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Mr. Moore has set the record for the largest number of U.S. states visited by the pilot of a fixed-wing aircraft in 24-hours.

Mr. Moore holds an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate in Single and Multi-Engine Airplanes and type-ratings in Cessna Citation and Beechcraft Premier aircraft. He is also an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE) and the proprietor of  Dan Moore Aero LLC, a company providing insurance-approved pilot training in a number aircraft makes and models. To date, Mr. Moore has logged upwards of 11,000 flight-hours.

Moore’s latest record attempt got underway when he departed Oklahoma’s Durant Regional Airport-Eaker Field (DUA) at 10:00 CDT on 23 July. Thereafter the intrepid and apparently indefatigable aviator made stops in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, New York, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and finally Wisconsin, arriving at Oshkosh’s Wittman Regional Airport (OSH) at 09:15 CDT on 24 July—the opening day of AirVenture 2023.

Having completed the world-record-setting odyssey—which spanned nearly three-thousand statute-miles—Moore must now collect the entirety of the video and tracking data recorded over the flight and submit such to the records adjudicators at Guinness. If deemed sufficiently compelling by aforementioned, a Guinness World Record will be awarded to Moore in approximately three-months.

Dan Moore began attending AirVenture at the age of 13-years and contends the event directly affected his decision to pursue a flying career. Moreover, Moore’s birthday falls during EAA’s annual AirVenture extravaganza, the largest, best-attended general aviation fly-in/air-show/hootenanny in the wide world—and a splendid backdrop against which to attempt the setting of an aviation-related world-record.
