Helicopter Parenting. For Real.

I am guessing this dad was an unhappy adolescent, and is determined to buy his own kid a happy time in high school:

According to a Lake County Sheriff's Office report, Bart Sutherin flew his 14-year-old son to his first day of classes at East Ridge High School in a rented blue-and-white Hughes 300 helicopter this week...According to the Orlando Sentinel, Sutherin told officials that he wanted to ''make a positive impression on the other students'' on his son's first day of 9th grade.
