A high-flying 12-year-old could see his dream of becoming a pilot take off after sitting behind the controls of a plane.
Multilingual Priory Community School student Lunar Yamamoto has already flown 33 times to Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, France and China but has now found himself flying an aircraft himself in Bristol.
The school has supported Lunar to help him achieve his ambitions.
Lunar said: “All my flying experiences have greatly broadened my mind and made me feel I would love to be a pilot even more.
“To make my dream come true, I joined the air cadets in September and I am now concentrating on doing well at school.”
Lunar is fluent in Japanese and English and is now learning Spanish to help him with his future aspirations.
His love of flying runs in the family as his mother is airline cabin crew and his grandfather as a navigator in Mosquitos in the RAF.
