April Fredrickson remembers the look on her youngest child's face when the 11-year-old was placed in the front seat of the seaplane next to the pilot, completely in awe of the plane's controls.

"The look on his face was just incredible. He's like the daredevil of the family," said April, adding that when the family went rafting he was out in front. "He was just really in heaven and so excited."
