  • Description

    His Royal Highness Crown Prince Reza Cyrus Pahlavi of Iran, aged 13, has made a solo flight over the Iranian capital Teheran.

    The Prince was allowed to make his first solo flight in a light, single engine plane after he passed a test set by Iran's Air Force Commander-in-Chief, General Khadem. The Prince had already spent about 20 hours in the air on flights with an instructor.

    The Empress watched the Prince's two minute flight around Teheran's Doshan Tappe airport. The Prince said he felt lonely at first but later developed self confidence. The Prince hopes to continue his flying when he has time off from his studies.

    SYNOPSIS: He also checked the plane's fuselage and engine before taking off.

    The Prince hopes to pilot a helicopter when he is a little older.
