Just a Summer FantasyBeechcraft Bonanza from San Diego, California and head east & he will just keep going and going. He has but one goal and that is to be the youngest pilot to fly solo across the world. Matt Guthmiller trained as a pilot at the Hanscom Field in Bedford. He said it was just one of those things that he had always wanted to do while he was growing up. He always played various flight simulator games and wanted to go and eat at the airport cafe while he is watching planes take off and land.
A few years back over a summer weekend, he got really bored and thought of getting a pilot’s license once he was 17 years old. That’s the time when he talked his parents into permitting him to go out and do a little introduction to flying. They would never have dreamt that now, three years down the line, he might just be the youngest pilot to fly solo around the globe.
