Mark is a Private Pilot!
Few things in life are as gratifying as getting your private pilot’s certificate. Mark Conklin realized that today! Over the course of a couple years, work, life, and all the other things that can be obstacles, Mark stayed persistent and overcame. He spent long hours studying everything from aerodynamics and weather to mechanical systems and airspace. He practiced steep turns, short field landings, and pilotage until he could do them in his sleep. And in spite of some restless nights and lots of sweat in the days leading up to his check ride, especially this morning, he showed the examiner that he is airworthy!! Now that the sky, quite literally, is the limit, what’s next? We will let him celebrate a bit, breathe a little, let it all sink in, then go have some fun exploring the sky! Awesome job Mark and congratulations as well to his CFI Chris Buckley!
