Round the World Dream

Round the World Dream

Just recently, GMS’s Sixth Form Reporter, Louisa Glen-Bramley, interviewed Travis Ludlow, who at 14 years old, was the youngest solo glider pilot. He told Louisa that he started flying as the result of an initial trial sessionbought by his father, which has, over time, developed into a hobby. He is now training, with powered planes, every weekend.

After having taken six of the nine CAA Private Pilot’s Licence exams, he’s now half way through the qualification, which he aims to finish by the end of 2019. He believes he has spent a total of 45 hours flying and is looking forward to using his licence for “exploration and travelling to new, exciting places”.

Bucks Free Press, interviewed Travis’s father, who said, “Initially I brushed this off as just a kid’s dream, like being a fighter pilot or F1 racing car driver, but that was five years ago and he has not wavered from his plan in any way. I have now decided that I will not get in the way of his dream and will do whatever I can to help him have everything in place, so that should this adventure actually happen, he will be ready for take-off.”

This is news of an individual’s success, which the website enjoys promoting, we hope he will keep us informed of his progress. In the meantime, GMS is proud of his success thus far and say “WELL DONE”
