While the north valley residents were tucked away in their nice warm beds early this morning, Grace Cisler was tearing up the pattern at KRTS, all by herself…yes, that is right, Grace soloed!! No diggity, this gal can fly! Grace was all too willing to let her CFI Sean Torbett out on the side of the ramp so she can start logging that PIC time. Sean watched from the sidelines as Grace joined the other planes in the pattern and earned her solo wings. Grace, a retired professional cross country skier, now baker/wrangler/tractor driver/GBA office entertainer, moved out to the Truckee area from New Hampshire a while ago for her love of skiing. However, the sport took its toll on her so she transferred that passion and craze (literally) to aviation. Grace, drives in from Truckee for those 5am slots to get her training in before she goes to work or school. She is definitely on track to earn her Private Pilot soon then quickly move into her next rating. Huge congratulations to Grace and Sean on this milestone!!
