Nikita takes the pilot’s seat
ROMA teenager Nikita Buitendag could be forgiven for having her head in the clouds.
The aspiring Royal Australian Air Force pilot was one of 22 high school students from across the state to participate in an aviation camp at the University of Southern Queensland’s Springfield campus last week.
Nikita, 16, travelled almost 500km from Roma to attend the camp.
“The camp really opened my eyes to the different opportunities there are in aviation and what it would be like to work as a pilot.”
