Ever wished you could fly like a bird? You can when you pilot a Cessna! Cessnas are some of the smallest and safest aircraft around and can help you see the world in a whole new way… just as long as you aren’t afraid of heights!
Damien and Rorih find out if they have what it takes to soar in this episode at College Air Richelieu.
Up up and away!
Being a pro athlete isn’t easy! It takes dedication, practice and a lot of hard work. A survey of athletes ahead of the London 2012 Olympics discovered that they put in over 10,000 hours of training time over the 4 years leading up to the games. It also found that most athletes began seriously training by age 14, have been training for 11 years, six hours a day, six days a week, and eat about 1.1 million calories per year… that’s almost three Christmas dinners per day! Yum! Time to get training!
Rorih is killing it!
This is what we called "lacrockey."
There is always a lot of fun to be had behind the scenes on a TV show… here are just a couple of those moments from this episode – enjoy! 🙂

RORIH is a 15-year-old Mohawk from Kahnawake. He considers his greatest quality to be his sense of humour and is always able to make his friends laugh. He loves playing pranks, and is really good at remembering long numbers. He’s a skilled athlete and loves playing Lacrosse. Some of his favourite celebrities include Lacrosse players like Cody Jamieson, Lyle Thompson, and Miles Thompson! One of his life-long dreams is to be a pro Lacrosse player, and another is to fly a plane. Maybe one of those dreams will come true on this very episode!

One of his secret skills is rapping really, really fast… and if he hadn’t made it as a pro hockey player, he would have pursued politics!
