Simon is now a certified flight instructor
The young in the photo is Simon Norwalk, and I have just read about him in the Lincoln County News.
When I met him for the first time Simon was fourteen. He was able to drive a small truck and to sail. And he was managing greatly his mountain bike.
His father, Jay Norwalk, is one of my best friends. They live in Maine, some place near Wiscasset. A wooden house surrounded by woods, close to one of the greatest mountain lakes I have ever seen.
Now Simon is eighteen, a freshman at the University of Southern Maine in Portland. He is also one of the youngest certified flight instructors in America.
Simon learned to fly from his father, Jay, who is a U.S. Air Force veteran. They have a small Cessna 172, and Simon soloed first time two years ago and earned his private pilot’s license when he was seventeen.
