Recommends it for: Aviators, People who want to learn how to fly, People just looking for inspiration
At the age of eleven? Goodness gracious me.
Just the fact that she wanted to do something just for the heck of it and accomplished it is great. Vicki Van Meter makes me want to get my own Pilot license and quit making up excuses and just do it.
