While the Western world considers Friday the 13th unlucky, today was anything but that for one pilot. Chris Austin, who is not superstitious (just a little stitious), became a Private Pilot!! And how sweet it is! To say Chris has had some challenges along the way is an understatement. Issues with his own plane, work, family, commuting into Reno, weather delays, etc., he has persevered through it all. Super impressive he endured when many would call it quits. Success in aviation is about tenacity and sticking with it. Awesome job Chris!! We are excited to get you going on your next goal, the instrument rating. But take some time off and celebrate this incredible accomplishment!! Huge congratulations to Chris and his CFI Troy Ware.
