Vinny at the yoke

Vinny, 11, is Pilot-in-Command with his mother and me in the backseat, holding on for dear life.

    uhm, er, I don't mean to be mean, but is he old enough to look over the instrument panel?!

    [thinking back to age 11, was I even tall enough to reach the car pedals?!]
  • Gail Edwin Aguiar PRO 10y

    Nope, he's not tall enough to see over the panel!

    Berit (his mum) and I are terrified! (I couldn't stop laughing)

    Man o man is this funny! That video just made my day. How can anyone watch that and not grin ear to ear! I hope mom has recovered.
    Is Vinny planning to get his pilots license soon?
  • Gail Edwin Aguiar PRO 10y

    You know, bosquetango, that was one of the first things Berit asked the instructor... haha!

    In North America it's 16, but they're from Germany, so it could be a different age limit there.

    Berit's hoping she has another five years to talk Vinny out of it!

    You can try all you want but I'm willing to bet Vinny's been bit and infected with the flying bug.

    I will present this videoclip at Vinny's memorial in Hamburg, Germany, on March 25th. It will be held at Fuhlsbüttel Airport.

    Clear skies, Vincent Thomas.
