Flight training with youngsters

This is Zach. I've been working with him on his private pilot license for a few months now. Although only 14 years old, he learns quickly and retains much of what he learned in the previous lesson. I have no doubt when he reaches his 16th birthday that will probably be the day he also solos. In teaching younger pilots, I really enjoy the enthusiasm of these young aviators. My son Aaron started at around 10 years and honestly was ready to solo by 15 (he did wait until his 16th birthday by regulation).
