What goes on in Jarrett McDonald’s brain? If he is not thinking about airplanes, he is thinking about race cars. If it isn’t race cars, then it is airplanes. This guy likes to go fast. However, today he had to throttle back a little on his speed obsession and be happy with about 100kts. But, those were the most memorable 100kts ever. Today Jarrett McDonald soloed in N495SP at KSPZ, runway 24. And, in front of an audience. His Mom and Dad joined his CFI Nik Joshi, on the ramp as Jarrett greased his landings. Jarrett is a RARA scholarship recipient and working to earn his Private Pilot before he starts his senior year at Reed. Based on his success so far, I’d say this guy will be walking the halls as a private pilot once mid-August comes around. Awesome job Jarrett!! Congratulations as well to his CFI Nik!
