Tanner Fernando, son of Rukmal Fernando, who lives in Michigan, USA is a great example to aviation enthusiasts of his age. Tanner is just 17 years old, but his enthusiasm towards aviation has made him seem more mature. Since the young age of 11 he has participated in many aviation related activities, including his first flight, and the will to learn has made his knowledge grow day by day.
At the age of 14 he joined the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) which gives him the opportunity to learn many aspects of aviation. “Knowledge is power.” Tanner has made the words come true. He has a long way to go, but the foundation has made him much stronger. His video shows some of his aviation knowledge at flying his flight simulator.
Tanner is a great example to the Next Generation of Aviation. He will be attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University for Commercial Aviation in September and we wish him all the very best for his great bright future
