Another Pilot of the Month soloed today!! Justin Pedersen, July’s Pilot of the Month (see below), soloed his favorite plane N328ME at KRTS, runway 26, this morning. A few laps enjoying a solo cockpit went by too quick, but he eventually taxied back and picked up his CFI Austin White. Justin is a RARA Scholarship recipient that is on the fast track for his PPL. Except, he has to hold short a bit waiting on his 17th birthday. Be ready for his private pilot email the end of November. Even though he uses an Android and wears Trix Crocs, we still think he is pretty awesome! Huge congratulations for Justin and Austin!
⭐️JUSTIN PEDERSEN⭐️ Justin is our July pilot of the month! He has continually impressed his CFI with his study habits at home. He shows up to lessons with an in-depth knowledge of the topics they are going to cover that day, making it extremely easy to progress through topics quickly. He may hate waking up early but he makes it to all of his lessons early and prepared. Justin already has the attitude of a pilot. His CFI told him he was getting low and he blamed the CFI for adding nose down trim. Not the fact that they were at power idle.🙄 He makes checklists interesting, since they have to ensure the instruments and engine gauges are “chillin.” Awesome job on solo and Pilot of the Month Justin!!
