    The sky’s the limit for one young man who has dreamed of a career in aviation ever since a chance meeting with a JetBlue pilot. Now, the two have reconnected and the pilot, Captain Eric Scott, is acting as his mentor. NBC’s Ron Mott reports.

    JetBlue pilot inspires young aviator

    Scott first met with the inquisitive boy nearly 10 years ago, when 5-year-old Elijah Hedrington first became interested in becoming a pilot.
    Now the two have reconnected and Hedrington is currently enrolled as a sophomore at New York’s Bronx Aerospace High School. Scott has also eagerly agreed to serve as his mentor.
    “The first time I saw him he became my role model,” Hedrington said. “A black man, being a pilot, a job I wanted to do.”
