95-Year-Old Man Sets World Record As Older Active Pilot

A 95-year-old man of Northern California has become the world's oldest active pilot. The Sacramento Bee reported that Guinness World Record keeper confirmed that a flight last month by Peter Weber Jr qualified him for the record book. Weber was 95 years, 4 months and 23 days when he flew three looping circles around an airfield near Sacramento on March 30.
Guinness lists Cole Kugel as the oldest pilot ever. Kugel, who lived in Longmont, Colorado, flew for the last time at age 105 in 2007 and died same year. Weber says the record keepers have designated a new category, oldest qualified pilot still licensed and flying solo. The Air Force veteran has been pilot for 72 years and says he flies about twice a month.
