What better way for a local PE teacher to spend his summer than learning how to fly! Ben Mallery, teacher turned student, soloed today in N328ME at KRTS, runway 26. Ben has been working hard on this goal and today his instructor, Jacob Hetland, blew the whistle and cut Ben loose in the pattern to knock out some touch-and-go laps. Being a PE teacher and now a soloed pilot, I don't think anything scares Ben. Which is good because summer flying throws the challenges of thermals, wind, and now smoke into flight training. Ben is making awesome progress and well on his way to his Private Pilot! Congratulations again to Ben and Jacob!!
