John Sande soloed!! This early morning soloed pilot helped chase the F-15s out of Stead with N670CS to make room for his first solo laps on runway 26. John proficiently flew the C172 with ease as his instructor Ethan Chinowsky watched from the ramp. A ramp where John has many memories of watching the Air Races with his dad. And now having soloed there, the airport holds even more meaning. Former Stanford football player and alumni, this guys has a busy life. Managing partner at a local law firm, beautiful family, active community supporter, private pilot flight training, ground school, and probably some (or lots) of golf games. But he has manages to find the time to get it all in and focus on taking the steps toward private pilot. We could not be more happy for you John! Congratulations to you and your CFI Ethan! Now the fun begins on those solo flights as you get to visit some cool Northern Nevada airports!
