KRTS Runway 14. Congratulations to her and her instructor Jeff on this memorable occasion! Flying solo for the first time is a fantastic achievement and Rocky should feel extremely proud.
Congratulations to the sky's newest IFR pilot! Connor is one of the most motivated pilots we have worked with. Earned his PPL just a couple months ago and now his IFR. We also need to mention he pretty much aced his IFR written. The instrument rating is one of the most difficult ratings to achieve but Connor proved that with determination, anything is possible. Awesome job Connor!!
Congratulations to Sophee for her first solo flight!! With her dad Dane and instructor Jeff watching from the ground at the Stead Airport, Sophee took off in N2291C and completed two great landings on runway 32!! Great job and we wish you the best as you work towards your PPL!!
