Talk about soaring to new heights! Caleb Smith is not your average 16-year-old. The P.G. County, MD native just made history as the youngest Glider pilot in the United States per reports from WUSA-9. It’s a dream come true for the high school student who has had a dream to work in aviation ever since a birthday trip to the airport at the age of 10. It was after that discovery flight at Bowie Freeway Airport, Smith knew that this would be the lane for him and would even periodically check to see if the vision was still intact by flying periodically with a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) over the years.
