PIC FROM CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED James Westwood) A schoolboy who earned his helicopter pilot's licence on his 16th birthday has proudly showed off his wings - but revealed that he's never set foot on an aeroplane. Talented James Westwood passed his chopper training just hours after he turned 16, the minimum age to take the test, and can now fly solo. But he's not always wanted to take to the skies - and revealed he's NEVER been in an aeroplane - or even left the country. James, from Woolhope, Herefordshire, doesn't even own a passport, despite being able to get behind the controls of a chopper and take to the skies. SEE CATERS COPY
