5-year-old Flies Aircraft


Registered Member
For most 5-year-olds, September brings the first day of kindergarten — not the first time they've glided into record books.

But Duo Duo of China did just that when he successfully piloted an ultralight aircraft almost a thousand feet above the outskirts of Beijing, in a bid to become the world's youngest solo pilot.
If I were five years old and piloting an ultralight, I'd be frightened to death or worse. From this article I'm reading, I just don't know what to say about this. :shocked:

Wow!, flying a plane at 5? that is just awesome! I have always wanted to learn to fly, maybe someday i will end up being a pilot, but I just can't learn to be a pilot by 5, about 10 years to late haha. I can barely even remember anything from when i was five. Personally i wouldn't trust this kid to fly me around anywhere, I would be very frightened.
