Best Birthday present ever!! Juan just logged his first hour of training toward his PPL on his birthday! Plus, he got to check out gorgeous Lake Tahoe as he navigated his way over the ridge with his instructor Nick. He shared this joy with his brother in the back seat. Check out that smile! The aviation bug definitely bit him
