Native American teen reaches for the sky

Those who read my February AOPA Flight Training column, Navajo Pilot, about young Tyler Allen of Window Rock, Arizona, will appreciate the the wonderful EAA News article that appeared online today regarding his attendance at EAA Air Academy camp. Read Ric Reynolds’s inspiring article, Native American Teen Reaches for the Sky. Good goin’ Tyler!

    1. Thank you, John! We greeted Tyler and two other Air Academy campers at the airport when they returned last night. Judging by their smiles the experience was a huge success. Very rewarding for all involved…
