Fabulous First Flight!

There was so much to enjoy about his first ever flight in a general aviation airplane that Kenneth Spinneweber just couldn’t pick a favorite.

“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.
