Since Zephyr was born in 2012 he has been my little flying buddy. As soon as he was old enough to walk and move around he wanted to touch my models. He has been using a flight simulator since he was two, but for years there was no connection, just pure passion. About two years ago he started to pull it together on the sim. He flies the sim a lot, every type of model, and when he showed me he could take off, fly a circuit, and land without crashing, I started to work with him on a buddy box. That was probably last summer. By this summer he has been flying almost all of my models on the buddy box, getting time in on classics like a Goldberg Chipmunk and a 1/4 scale Cub. About a month ago he convinced me he was ready to start taking off and landing, and I let him do that with a little foam Champ. He blew me away with his level of control and how smooth he flew, I was so proud!

After that I set him free on his parkflyer Corsair. He has about a dozen flights under his belt now with that and is flying very well!
