The New England Journal of Medicine reports that 1 out of 1 designated pilot examiner agrees that Dr. David De Los Santos is now qualified to be instrument rated. As of this morning, David, a local Pulmonary and Critical Care Physician, earned the privileges to fly in IMC!! David took off in N2291C with the DPE as the sun was coming up and held, intercepted, approached, tracked, missed, departed (not all in that order), and flew the plane without even being able to see the gorgeous sunrise. Dr. De Los Santos has been working tirelessly on this rating on during his limited time off. He passed the oral portion a couple weeks ago but was weathered out for the flight. Today he could breathe easy and enjoy the calm skies. Huge congratulations to David and his CFII Tristan Armstrong. You be-lung in the sky!
