Kicker – Piloting two world records

MYRNA BROWN, HOST: California flight instructor Robina Asti broke not one but two Guinness World Records when she took to the air last week. 

And she got rave reviews from her student, Brandon Martini.

MARTINI: She taught me a few things up there that I haven’t learned in well over a thousand hours. And it was kind of neat getting a new perspective from somebody who’s just been flying so long.

When she gave her last flight lesson at the Riverside Municipal Airport, she became both the world’s oldest flight instructor and the world’s oldest active pilot. 

The 99-year-old Robina Asti told KABC tv…

ASTI: I love getting people to experience what it’s like to lift off this earth. It is so good!

It’s The World and Everything in It.
