mother, Gala, learned about the
AOPA headquarters-hosted the event.
event through the local newspaper. "The flight was excellent and a lot of fun," said Duckworth. "I got to fly a little, and
the pilot explained all the controls."
Shuaib Syed, age 10, and Gabriel Khewaja, age 9, were still excited after their flight.
"It was amazing. My pilot did a cool turning maneuver," said Syed. "And my friend
Gabriel actually flew the plane."
Khewaja said he felt like a real pilot during his flight in a Cessna 172. "I saw grass, cars,
highways, and a lot of trees. The view was great," he said. While Khewaja said he would
like to become a pilot, Syed said he would fly again but didn't want to become a pilot.
Lisa Deener saw an ad in the newspaper about Learn To Fly Day. "We got here at
8:45 [a.m.] to make sure we got a spot. It was the most exciting thing I've done in a long
time," she said. "It was just the feeling of doing something that very few people get to
do was exciting. I'm hoping one of my two kids will be a pilot someday."
Ivan Smith enjoyed his first flight in a general aviation aircraft. "It was awesome,
especially taking off and landing," he said. "I helped keep the plane steady. I'd do it
again, and definitely want to learn how to fly."
Jim Piccirilli, the new owner of the Frederick Flight Center, had a display tent in the
middle of the static display. "I think the event went great. I wasn't there, but everyone I
spoke with after said it was a positive experience," he said. "And we got 32 emails from
people who want more information about learning how to fly."
