Jonathan is the youngest pilot to fly both an airplane and a helicopter, setting six aviation world records in the process. On his 18th birthday, he received his commercial pilot license and has recently received his private instructor license.

In the Fall of 2010, Jonathan will be attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, which is located in Long Beach, CA. While attending college, one of Jonathan’s plans is to earn money for school so that he can teach others how to fly. Jonathan has been mentored by members of the Tuskegee Airmen and Western Airlines’ first African American pilot Fredrick Pitcher. He is also being groomed by some of the most distinguished and decorated pilots in aviation history.
