Hannah is 6 years old. She is in first grade and LOVES school and all her many activities. Her interest in airplanes began because her mom and dad are both pilots for major airlines! Hannah’s dad bought a simulator and let her try to fly the trainer planes a few times. Her dad saw some interest and ability so decided to start “easing” her into the hobby. Her play room is adjacent to his shop so she saw him building, soldering and charging batteries a lot.
Hannah has built a few foam (throwing) gliders that make up her fleet. Hannah’s dad decided to let her try his Tech One Yak 54. Hannah took the controls of a “real” model for the first time and lasted about 20 seconds of controlled flight. She has taken an interest in flight and is currently learning to fly models.
