A 14-year-old boy has become the UK's youngest pilot after flying a glider on his own.

Callum, from Oxfordshire, made the flight in December at Bicester Flying Club, two days after his 14th birthday.

He said: "It was phenomenal. You can't beat the feeling of being in an aircraft by yourself. So much fun."

A change in the law in October meant the minimum flying age was dropped from 16 to 14.

A glider is a plane that doesn't have an engine. It can be launched into the air a number of ways, usually by a cable attached to a winch or an aircraft.

Callum trained for 14 weeks with experienced instructors before taking to the sky solo.

He hopes to join the Royal Air Force when he's older.
