Breaking News! This morning 16 year-old Compton resident Isaiah Cooper started his quest to become the youngest African American to pilot an airplane around the continental United States of America flying #straightouttaCompton. He took off this morning from Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum at the Compton airport for his practice flight in preparation for the Guinness World Record breaking attempt to be the youngest person to fly solo around the Earth at age 18.
Isaiah has been mentored by Robin Petgrave, founder and Executive Director of Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum!
Isaiah’s mentor and pastor @michaeljtfisher prayed with him and his entire family before he took off. Compton family join me in wishing Isaiah a safe and life changing flight!
