When Kreg Anderson wanted to learn to fly, Don Clobes took him under his wing.

Under Clobes' tutelage, Anderson accomplished a rare feat - the 16-year-old got his driver's license and his pilot's license on the same day.


"Most kids are excited about getting their driver's license," said Anderson, the son of Tom and Angie Anderson of Alexandria. "My driver's license was minimal. This was the highlight of my month, maybe my year. It was just a great feeling."
