Josh is a Commercial Pilot!!
What do Abraham Lincoln, Muhammad Ali, and Josh Blackburn all have in common? They are all from the great state of Kentucky and probably enjoyed an occasional sip of moonshine :) All great men, but only one is a commercial pilot…Josh Blackburn! That’s right y’all, Josh carried that Kentucky unbridled spirit into his checkride and advanced his piloting to commercial aviation. This morning, Josh beat the crazy winds aloft and took off with the examiner and successfully demonstrated the skills needed for this hard earned certificate. Josh is one of the hardest working guys around. Not only did he serve our great nation in the United States Marine Corps, he now works as a manager at Tesla, a job that keeps him beyond busy. Somehow he squeezes in time to fly here at GBA, plus fly back and forth regularly to the Bluegrass state (where there are not as many banjos as we might think) to visit family, especially his beautiful granddaughter, Shyanne. Huge congratulations to Josh and his CFI Cody Lucero!!
