Weird World: 99-year-old woman becomes world’s oldest active pilot

A 99-year-old woman has become the world’s oldest active pilot.

Robina Asti recently gave her final flight lesson at Riverside Municipal Airport in California.

She said: “I love getting people to experience what it’s like to lift off this Earth. It is so good.”

Robina is determined to show that older people are strong and can still contribute to society. She edged out the previous record-holder, an Iowa man who flew aged 98.

Her last flying lesson was with student Brandon Martini, who gained a “new perspective” after flying with Asti – who has been teaching people to take to the skies for decades.

He said: “She taught me some things up there that I haven’t learned in well over 1,000 hours.
It was neat getting a new perspective from somebody who’s been flying so long.”
