Cheryl and I have been teaching our sons to fly over the years.  Our oldest passed his Private pilot checkride today!  Proud parents!

His brother will be old enough to solo this summer so he won't be to far behind :)

Congrats to your son. My youngest turned 15 today. He soloed a few month ago, and hopes to be doing his private pilot checkride one year from today. I have been doing lessons in my father's Taylorcraft with my oldest who is 19. I hope to have his private finished up early this summer, before he transfers to a major university to finish his degree.

Congrats to your son. And congrats to you and Cheryl. I tried teaching my now FedEx Captain daughter to fly back in the day. Found out I didn't have the patience to teach a family member.

Yep, the youngest is flying gliders. He also bought a vintage glider and working on it's restoration under my supervision. My oldest probably would have started flying sooner, but he wanted to fly the Taylorcraft. It's second restoration by my dad was completed this summer. The Taylorcraft was not the airplane I received my pilot certificate in, but I learned a lot about flying in that airplane. I did do most of my CFI checkride in it though.
