California teen Taylor De Ley stopped by the North Adams airport on Monday on his trip around the United States in a plane he built with his father.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Many planes fly in and out of the Harriman and West Airport but the pilot of one of those on Monday had an interesting story. Taylor De Ley, a 17-year-old with high ambitions, stopped in for a brief visit on his trip around the country.
The California pilot is promoting teenage aviation and hitting all four corners of the country, starting with Harbor, Wash., then up to northern Maine, down to Key West, Fla., and then back home to California. Additionally, he is flying a plane that he built with his father.
De Ley reeled in some sponsorship and has been updating his Facebook fan page with photos and notes from his trip.
De Ley only dropped in for some gas and food before taking back off for Maine.
