When 13-year-old James Garvin was assigned to do an independent research project on the subject of his choice, he knew exactly what his subject would be: Flying.
A seventh grader in his school’s Gifted program, James has been flying with his grandfather Jerry Cornwell since he was 3 years old, first in the back seat of an RV-8 and now in Jerry’s Bearhawk.
James has got 50 hours flying, accumulating 40 takeoffs and landings unassisted, Jerry reports.
The video has a brief lesson from James, then a flight on his simulator, wrapping up with a clip from a flight in the Bearhawk.
Jerry proudly reports that James earned an A on his report. Check it out and you’ll see why.
