Conquering New Heights

My husband and our two oldest boys just returned home after being away this week at Boy Scout camp.  One highlight:  our 14-year old took an aviation merit badge class and capped it off with an opportunity to fly a real plane…a Cessna, and hubby got to go along for the ride.  

Boy Scout flew the plane completely on his own for over 20 minutes and logged a total of 42 minutes of fly time, “which counts towards the hours I need to get a pilot’s license”  he says.  

Wha..?  Huh?  

Thankfully, you have to be 17 to get a license, so I can put this on the back burner of my “Things to Worry About”.
