Will Blackburn

Posted by Dave Holborn 21/7/2013

Well done to our youngest solo ever (unless I am mistaken).  Will Blackburn, who is a mere 14 years of age went solo today on his 52nd flight after less than 2 months of training -  A testament to the instructors before me and to Wills dedication and talent.  I will watch with interest as his flying career develops. Here is the photo after he landed.
