Rhett Morgan has been training in aviation since before he could walk. He has always flown along with his dad, a professional pilot and flight instructor in airplanes and helicopters. Rhett’s intentions were to solo both an airplane and a helicopter on his 16th birthday (the first day allowed by the FAA). And he has been working hard to accomplish that goal for a while. Unfortunately, the helicopter has maintenance issues and is undergoing repair. At 6 foot 2 inches and football player weight, Rhett said he was not cut any slack by the instructor, who was his father.
Rhett’s 18 year old brother Spence, became a certified pilot at age 17. Rhett loves playing football, baseball and flying. He says he may become a professional pilot, but if not he will always fly.
