A Cheltenham Schoolboy celebrated his 16th birthday today, 26 January 2012, with a helicopter flight -- with a difference!
Ollie Chadwick made two unaccompanied 'solo' flights, one in a jet turbine helicopter and one in a piston engine helicopter -- believed to be a 'record'.
Ollie, a GCSE fifth former at Cheltenham College, was originally given a trial helicopter lesson on his 12th birthday and has continued the training ever since, but the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) will only allow solo flights from age 16.
