    Charles W. Plitt, 67, was a teenager when he started flying solo.

    A native of Winston-Salem, Plitt graduated from Reynolds High School. In 1964, he joined Piedmont Aviation where he was a flight instructor, then a charter pilot. He moved away from Winston-Salem in 1967 to work for Eastern Airlines as a pilot. He retired as a pilot from American Airlines in 2003. He served in the Marine Corps Reserve from 1965 to 1971.

    Now, Plitt is back where he started more than 50 years ago — in flight instruction. He is currently a part-time instructor at Piedmont Flight Training at Smith Reynolds Airport in Winston-Salem.
