Local Kids Learn to Fly

ENDICOTT -- Local kids got a chance to learn how to fly Sunday. We captured the view at Tri-Cities Airport.

"There's such few pilots throughout the country, actually across the country there's only about a half a million pilots. So consequencely in order to keep the process going, we have to get young folks interested," said Bob Kosztyo, a pilot at the Tri-Cities Airport.

"My brother, he flies planes and I've always wanted to fly a plane too. I like old world war 2 planes, because my great grandpa he flew planes in World War 2," said sixth-grader Noah Varsalona.

"My motivation was my dad took me to an airport that was a grass-strip when i was 8 years old and he bought me a flight in a pipro cup. It was on a grass strip and that is now part of Rutgers University in New Jersey so it was just a great experience and I got hooked," said Bob Kosztyo, a pilot at the Tri-Cities Airport.
