Five-year-old He Yide may enter the record books by becoming the youngest person to fly a plane. But in this Chinese family, it's the father, who claims the fame -- and not necessarily for the right reasons. The he has previously angered many by forcing his 4-year old son to walk naked in the snow.

The video went viral with many calling it abuse.

But the dad says it's simply tough parenting ... that he's dubbed 'Eagle Education'. Now he's facing more criticism for what many say is this potentially dangerous publicity stunt.

"Eagle Education includes the qualities of bravery, morality, emotion and strength. Bravery is an important part of 'Eagle Education.' Today's flight realizes this principle."
