Irish I could solo N328ME at KRNO today…something our favorite Irishman Damien McKeown might have been thinking this morning. But, wish no more, it happened!! Damien gladly dropped his CFI Danny Britson off on the ramp and took to the sky. Danny was Dublin over with pride watching Damien nail his first solo laps, it was spud-tacular. Damien is no stranger to the sky, he is a rotorcraft ATP and, in his time off, he is working on getting his fixed wing add ons. Finally wised up ;) Most of Damien’s time is over water so this high desert/mountain flying is a bit new for him, but he is obviously handling it like a pro. Awesome job by Damien and big congratulations to him and Danny. Grab a pint of the black stuff and have a shamrockin’ good time celebrating tonight!
