Beijing, China: Believe it or not! A five-year old has (almost) mastered the art of flying a Bee3 weighing 100 Kg. Being the youngest ever pilot, He Yide (nicknamed Duo-duo) from China managed to make a 35-minute flight over the Beijing Wildlife Park, all by himself!

Although, there was a pilot/instructor sitting beside him, he did not take his help, thanks to the gruelling training at a private flying club. Duoduo's father, He Liesheng, a manager at a private textile company in Nanjing paid approximately 30,000 yuan for his lessons.

One could check China's micro-blogging portal Weibo for Duoduo's training pictures, uploaded by his father. But, this is not the only surprising feat by the tot, who has sailed a yacht two times his weight at an international competition and climbed the Fujiyama mountain during a rainstorm.

Rather exceptional, the boy has a daily routine that is extraordinary too. He wakes up everyday at around 4:30 am and goes to the airport for the flight training.

Kudos! young boy.
