Tate coming in from his solo touch and go's at KRNO this morning. Tate soloed just a couple weeks after his 16th birthday and is continuing to build his hours so he can get his PPL right after his 17th birthday. Why drive at 16 when you can fly?
Brenden Georg soloed this morning!! He is so determined to get to the airlines. Got his First Class medical approved yesterday and soloed this morning. Below is Brenden with his instructor Earl Kessler and the traditional solo shirttail. Congratulations Brenden! There is no stopping you now!
Meet one of our students, Francisco. He soloed on January 27, 2018 and has had several solo flights since! This guy is super determined to get his PPL. Took the 172 out at 7AM this morning which means he was pre-flighting in the balmy 21 degrees. Today he got to land on 16R with the "big guys" for the first time. Got out of the plane smiling...that is what aviation does to you :)
