2. Send him a message!
Most part of this journey will be his solo flight. Let's leave a comment on his YouTube videos to show your support. That'd be so encouraging for him!
"If I can do it, you can do it too"
When he was 18 years old, he lost his right eyesight because of a car accident. He had faced the fact that he could never pursue his dream of becoming a pilot in Japan because of the law. However, he made it happen by overcoming the tragedy. He became a pilot here in the U.S. and now he enjoys sharing his love and passion for flying with his student pilots as a flight instructor. He has been sending an inspirational message to people and has reached out to thousands of people in the U.S. and Japan.
