Voyager .

Truly great achievements are not wholly realized by the particular tools and techniques people use to accomplish their feats; rather, it is the passion and commitment of the people leading and performing the remarkable feats that make such efforts not only noteworthy but also life affirming statements of the power of human ability. This article examines the Voyager project, the five-year aeronautical research and development effort that culminated with the production of an aircraft that flew--in nine days during December 1986--around the world without stopping and without fueling. In doing so, it details the passion of the team--led by pilots Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager, aircraft designer Burt Rutan, and project manager Peter Riva--tells the story of how they designed and developed Voyager, as opposed to discussing any particular project management practices they used to realize this project.
