Not allowed to fly solo before his 16th birthday, Jamail Larkins wrote to more than 100 companies to get sponsorship to do a trip to Canada, where the age limit was a few years younger. After returning to the US, Jamail started selling flying manuals in order to pay for its own flying time. Today, still under 30 is the founder and CEO of Ascension Air, a company that sells fractional ownership of airplanes and is estimated in over 5 million dollars.
Next Monday (17th March 2014), Jamail Larkins will come to Porto and give a talk on its short but very bright career, don't miss it! (FEUP's B003, 6:30 PM). Also he will come to LSTS for a short chat and see our own aircraft (maybe buy a fraction?) at around 5:45 PM.
