LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - You've heard of helicopter parents, and now you're going to meet what we're calling a helicopter child that has been bounced from one foster home to another.
Through our partnership with the Arkansas Department of Human Services, we share Nicholas' story.
10-year-old Nicholas got suited up at the Arkansas National Guard Army aviation support facility.
"If the bad guys were chasing me, I'd be able to hear them 6 times better than they could hear me!"
On Tuesday, he got the chance to be the wingman for instructor pilot Major Stephen Brack. Inside the cockpit of a giant military chopper, this boy got the drill of a lifetime.
It's one on one attention that Nicholas so desperately needs. For once, unarmed, defenses down -- just a young man and a man in fatigues.
"So the ones that are medical have the red cross on it."
