Most of us remember looking forward to turning 16 so we could obtain our driver's license. Levi Doenges of Friday Harbor was anticipating a bigger accomplishment once he turned 16 - his first solo flight as a pilot.
Levi Doenges with instructor Tom DeShon
He completed three take offs and landings Monday, January 15, 2018 at Friday Harbor airport garnering about 40 minutes of solo time
His dad, Tom, said, "It was pretty amazing to watch the instructor (Dan DeShon of Westwind Aviation) get out of the plane and wave him on."
