Mike McCain is a private pilot!! He just got his certificate today, but already beats most of us with flight experience. Mike has been flying with his Dad since he was 8 years old. The roles have reversed and Mike will now be PIC-ing with his Dad in their beautiful C182. Mike is one of the sweetest, happiest people you could ever meet and carried that spirit through his training. He definitely faced some challenges getting to this point with weather, COVID, availability due to running a constantly busy local business, and then all of the other things that life throws at us. He refused to quit as this is an additional special bond that him and his dad now share. It always seems impossible until it is done. Look what you accomplished Mike!! We are so happy for you. Now you can go find some more cool fishing spots. Great job as well to his instructor Tristan Armstrong!
Yes, Mike hates us for making him take this picture :) Such a good sport.
