Greg Rudman soloed!! The former NASA cyber security rocket man, turned pilot, soloed at KRTS this morning in N37JA. His CFI, Jack Darlington, stood shivering on the side of the runway watching Greg perform with ease. Greg was in no hurry to let Jack back in as that bit of freedom is an indescribable feeling and you never want it to end. Greg is a pretty accomplished fella. Has his masters in cyber security and still works full time in the industry. When he has time off, he is not out phishing (haha!), he is listening to live ATC, acing his knowledge exam, and flying around northern Nevada. Greg is also a joy to have around the office and ramp. Like the F5 key…so refreshing. As much as he loves flying and he being at the airport, there is no place like 127.0.0.1 where he can study chill with his cats. Another awesome accomplish to add to Greg’s success. That private pilot will be here before you know it. Congratulations to Greg and Jack! And, a friendly PSA, think before you click :)
