Congratulations to John Simonsen who soloed today in N752DW at KRTS, runway 08!! His instructor, Mark Montague, watched from the taxiway as John flew his first few solo laps in the pattern. COVID definitely messed up John’s flight training plans but he is now back at it and determined and focused. Between UNR classes, cracking jokes with Mark, and ground school studying, John has a plan and will definitely get there. He was "feeling pretty good,” as he put on his aviators and strolled out of the office. We hope he is out celebrating (responsibly) right now. Awesome job to John and Mark!!
