Gustavo soloed!! If you were listening to CTAF this morning, that cool, calm, collected voice with a Brazilian accent was Gustavo Riggio. He enjoyed some solo laps in N752DW, runway 24 as his CFI Kurtis Hornung looked on. Gustavo came to the States from Brazil several years ago enjoying all that Northern Nevada offers. Snowboarding, RV-ing with his family in the gorgeous Sierras, and other outdoor adventures. Then he took a discovery flight and the rest is history. He has been hard charging in the little spare time he has. Gustavo completed ground school, aced the knowledge test, and now soloed. Private Pilot will be here before he knows it. In the meantime, enjoy that feeling of freedom from this most memorable flight! Huge congratulations to Gustavo and Kurtis! All the efforts are paying off :)
