Young Pilot Makes Landing At AirVenture

Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter #1218 had a very special guest at the recent monthly gathering on September 11. Seventeen-year-old Brady Sherrow, Virburnum, Missouri, flew into Oshkosh AirVenture 2021 just two weeks after earning his private pilot certificate. For a low-time pilot, flying into the world’s busiest airport required a lot of planning and focus. With over 10,000 aircraft arriving during the week of AirVenture, Brady spent a lot of time getting prepared for his longest cross-country flight. He said “I didn’t want to be worrying about anything or stressing about anything. I thought the more prepared I am, the less eventful, and uneventful is always better when you’re flying.”
His aircraft of choice is a vintage 1946 Aeronca Champ.  
Brady gave a great presentation and fielded questions from fifty-plus chapter members in attendance. He was excited to share his experience and had encouraging words for the dozen young future aviators in the audience.
