Cpl. Ben Conner is Prince George's County police's newest Pilot-in-Command and he's only 30.

According to the county's police department, Conner is the force's youngest pilot-in-command as of May 8, when he completed nine months of intensive training.

He always had an interest in flying, the department reported, and he was given his first familiarization flight by the PGPD Cpl. Steve Grimes when he was only 16.

Conner earned his fixed wing license in Bowie and was an instructor for years, before he joined the US Army Reserves in 2009.

He is a 7-year veteran of the force and is currently assigned to the Special Operations Division’s Aviation Section.
