Young Canadian pilot has big dreams
from Regina Leader-Post
Matthew Skwara of Regina, Saskatchewan, in Canada remembers his first airplane ride. He wasn't just a passenger, sitting in coach on a big jet airliner. He was an eight-year-old boy riding shotgun next to Dave Atkinson, general manager of the Regina Flying Club and a former coworker of his mother's. "It was different because you always look up at [planes] and then we actually were in one and, 'OK, this is cool!' I was hooked," said Skwara. "That was my first airplane ride ever." It's no wonder planes stuck in his brain throughout the rest of his childhood, although he can't remember in what model he first took flight.
