“II loved it all,” he said after about a half-hour in the skies over Pittsburgh-Butler Regional Airport.
Spinneweber, 13, of Butler won the airport’s Facebook post contest at Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau’s Celebrate Butler County event earlier this year.
He collected his prize — a Discovery Flight courtesy of the airport’s Fixed Base Operator, AirQuest Aviation — this past weekend.
Kenneth generously selected his brother Leo, 8, to be his passenger. And together they flew over some familiar sites including their home and the school they attend: St. Luke Lutheran in Cabot.
Kenneth, who has an interest in aviation, already is a member of the Civil Air Patrol 712.
“He definitely can not wait to fly again,” said his mother Trina Carl Spinneweber.
