Aaron wants to be a professional pilot, and so when The Spirit Of Goole started the Youth Build A Plane project he jumped at the chance. He started working with his pals at just 13 years old to learn all the skills needed to construct an aircraft, A British designed and manufactured kit Bi-plane called The Sherwood Ranger XP. Aaron and his friends have worked tirelessly assembling over 33,000 parts, and two and a half years later they are getting ready to test fly it.The whole team are backing Aaron in his attempt and The BBC have started to film him as he finishes the plane, learns to fly it and then follow him on his epic flight covering over 30 countries and 35,000 miles.
