Today our resident hydrologist became a Private Pilot!! Daniel Newton holds many titles here at GBA…December Pilot of the Month, Private Pilot, Hydrologist, and a few we cannot post in case kids are reading this ;) Daniel usually goes with the flow, being a hydrologist at all, but today he stood out and demonstrated superior technique in his private pilot skills. He landed back at KRNO in N495SP and heard the congratulatory phase. This weather has been a hindrance to many checkrides but Dan got lucky with a break in the storms. Dan wants to make flying a career and is off to a good start. He is a bit of an over achiever, already has all his knowledge exams done through CFI. Now onto his instrument after he takes an afternoon off to celebrate. Huge congratulations to Dan and this memorable first certificate. Great job as well to his CFIs Kevin Marshall and Jack Darlington!
