Hey y’all…Our favorite Alabamian, Jordan Cauley, is a private pilot!! We might have told him we would not make this about his roots, but yeah….sorry Jordan :) Some go into the checkride as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. Not Jordan. He took to the sky this afternoon cooler than a pitcher of sweet tea chilling in the fridge. Greased his final landing back into KRNO and was all smiles hearing that “congratulations” from the examiner. I’ll tell you what, this awesome private pilot has been running himself a bit ragged working full time (and then some) in Fallon, spending time with his beautiful family, flying, and coming to the office to make us laugh and teach us about Jocko Willink’s leadership strategies. In the words of Jocko, “Discipline equals freedom” which Jordan realized today earning that freedom of flight. And, if the creek don’t rise, he will be continue moving forward on his instrument rating! Huge congratulations to Jordan and his CFI Kurtis Hornung.
