I love to hear about young folks getting involved in aviation since they are the future of the industry, and they won't regret not doing it sooner, like I do.
My first solo was June 20, 2007, in a C-172, at Franklin County, Louisburg, North Carolina, age 64. I had been wanting to do it for a long time and was finally encouraged after catching several articles about, um, mature pilots. I passed my private checkride on a cold (for North Carolina) January 4, 2008, and passed my instrument checkride on April 21, 2009.
Best thing I have ever done. Should have done it a long time ago.
Recently, a fellow in the neighborhood has started lessons, and the husband of one of my wife's cousins has also started lessons.
