Whoa, whoa, whoa… have you heard the news? Pilot sensation and ski bum, Melissa Drapala, successfully greased her way to the victory of solo flight here at KRNO and landed on not one, but two runways! As if the added challenge of solo wasn’t enough, Melissa handled the situation with a cool and calm domineer and flaunted her stuff to everyone within the Class C as she landed on runways 17L and 17R! Melissa is quite the involved aviatrix, if you don’t see her up in the air flying to her hearts content, then she’s probably rooting for her brother in the east (who’s also undergoing flight training!), burning the late-night oil at the Monday night study groups, or babysitting kids for one of her pilot friends… did anyone else notice that all of those had something to do with aviation in some way or another? It’s really no wonder that Melissa has become quite the incredible aviatrix, and with solo out of the way, she’ll be soaring the skies as a private pilot in no time! The biggest of kudos to Melissa and her partner in crime, Danny Britson, for making dreams a reality! Now, go fly Melissa!
