It’s an intriguing story: A young Florida girl, just 15, is deaf and blind. And she recently got the chance to fly a plane. According to a story in the St. Augustine Record, the flight was coordinated by Linwood Nooe, the director of Operation P.R.O.P., a nonprofit organization that offers free flights to people with disabilities. Nooe started the organization in 2010 with the intention of exposing people to aviation, especially those who may not have ever been able to fly in an airplane.
