Father, daughter learn to fly together

Father, daughter learn to fly together

By AOPA ePublishing staff

A Michigan man and his daughter learned to fly at the same time, with the same flight instructor, at the same airport.

Chuck Corry, of Fort Gratiot, Mich., and his daughter, Jamie, have been flying at St. Clair County International Airport in Port Huron, Mich., and learning from Skipper T. Steffens, according to an article in the Times Herald. After taking the pair on an introductory flight in September 2004, Steffens offered to let the Corrys take lessons at the same time before they soloed.

One could fly and the other could monitor what was being taught, then the other could fly. Chuck Corry received his private pilot certificate in October, and Jamie Corry is on schedule to complete hers by December.
