Video: solo at 16

1 min read

Soloing an airplane before you get your driver’s license? That was Ryan Glassmeyer’s goal from an early age, and that’s exactly what he managed to do. In this video, he talks about learning to fly as a teenager, how he convinced his parents, and then takes us along for that first flight.

    I soloed when I was 14 years old. My parents had to drive me to the airport. It wasn’t as easy to make videos in 1972.
