A STUDENT from Mile End is one of the youngest in the UK to earn his wings -just weeks after quizzing Prime Minister Gordon Brown about issues affecting young people.
Nineteen-year-old Tawanda Chieza is now looking for his first job in the airline industry after racking up 276 hours of flying time to earn his commercial pilot's licence.
He studied aviation management at London Metropolitan University and completed his practical training in South Africa and Canada.
Tawanda was one of five young people to win the chance to join the Prime Minister for a breakfast meeting just hours before he sat one of his final exams for his licence.
