Today Jeff McDonald left the big brown truck and earned a set of wings! That’s right, our favorite UPS driver is now a certified private pilot!! Normally Jeff moves “at the speed of business,” but today it was more around 100kts…not sure which is faster :) Jeff is another private pilot that persevered through some craziness in life and his pervious training. He came to GBA a few months ago determined to earn his certificate and today he can proudly say he hit that huge goal! Jeff demonstrated his calm spirit as we had to switch planes on him last minute due to an alternator issue. However, it did not phase him. He had the confidence in his proficiencies and showed the examiner he has what it takes to adapt and overcome. Jeff is wasting no time and already talking about getting started on his instrument rating. First a little celebration for him and his CFI Steven Lutsch is in order. With enough celebrating he might even consider selling Jenn his 1st Gen Tacoma (hint, hint Jeff). Huge congratulations to Jeff!!
