After Teen Pilot's Crash, How Young Is Too Young?

July 25, 2014, 9:50 PM

The deadly crash of a teenager on an around-the-world flight brought new attention to the dangers of record-setting youth adventures, and questions about how young is too young to fly a plane.

Yet pilots and flight instructors say that while some question the ability of kids and teens to deal with unforeseen difficulties, training matters more than age.

They say the real danger is when pilots push the boundaries of safety to set records for speed or youth.

Indiana teenager Haris Suleman, a newly licensed pilot, was trying to set a record for the fastest flight around the world in a single-engine airplane with the youngest pilot. His plane went down in the Pacific Ocean on Tuesday.

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the 17-year-old's plane to crash.
