His classroom’s in the clouds

Steve DiLullo passed along a nice article about long time Warren County flight instructor and aviator John Lane training a young pilot, Egan Rosell. Nice photos and article (http://is.gd/wwG6rV).

At an age when classmates are learning to maneuver around plastic parking cones to earn a driver’s license, Egan recently aced his first solo flight to get his private pilot’s license.

“It’s really different when you are up there,” says the soft-spoken teen. “It gives you a different perspective on things.”

Egan’s flight instructor, John Lane, says “different” also applies to his young student.

Lane helped to found the county airport in 1956 and at age 86 is still flying and instructing the next generation of pilots. When you have been flying for more than a half-century, says Lane, you can quickly spot who has the “right stuff” and Egan does.
