Elmira teen flies Ontario's skies
from The Oshawa Express
It was a dream come true for Matthew Jessop of Elmira as he took his first solo flight around Ontario's Oshawa Municipal Airport. The 17-year-old air cadet and fledgling glider pilot took the first major step to becoming a fully qualified private pilot by successfully flying his Cessna 152 around the circuit of the local airport completely alone, states a release from Cadets Canada. Before taking to the skies, Jessop first had to demonstrate competence in basic piloting skills to his flight instructor, Leroy Smith.
