Canada (Vancouver)
On 29 June 2006, Jonathan Strickland (Inglewood, California, USA), aged 14, became the youngest person to fly solo on both a helicopter and a fixed wing aircraft on the same day in Vancouver B.C., Canada, where the minimum age limit to fly solo in an aircraft was 14 years compared to 16 years in the United States. Jonathan first flew solo in a Cessna-l52 airplane at the Pacific Flying Club located at the Boundary Bay Airport outside Vancouver B.C., Canada. He then traveled twenty minutes away to Heli-College Canada Training Center at Langley Airport, Langley, B.C., Canada, where he made a solo flight in a Robinson R22 helicopter.
