Student Success – Flying solo

Sam of 10EMC has become the youngest person in the history of Royal Air Force Halton to fly solo, after taking to the skies last week in an ASK21 glider. This is even more remarkable as flying commenced at Halton back in 1913. Sam has also been sent on a record 24 flights, totalling four hours and fifty six minutes – something his instructor has never seen before! Pictured below, wearing his Akeley Wood School top and with instructor, Luke Hornsey; congratulations on your achievement, we are very proud of you.
