With the onset of bug season and decreased window visibility, it is wise to pursue the instrument rating . Not the reason Mustafa Shah took on the challenge, but today he was successful demonstrating he can focus on his instruments as he passed his instrument checkride!! Mustafa flew N752DW around Northern Nevada fulfilling the requirements of this difficult rating. Plus, he reported BREAD (our favorite). If Mustafa was nervous, he did not let it show. He was prepared for this moment. When he started training, he came prepped, having already completed his written and logging some PIC XC time. In the plane he is strictly business, but outside, he talks about his love of flying, especially the technical side. He has been known to get slightly annoyed when he is half a degree off on an approach. Mustafa is always aiming for perfection. Must run in the family because this UNR Alumni is the child of two surgeons. I am sure they are super proud of this awesome accomplishment. Congratulations to Mustafa and his CFII Ethan Chinowsky!
****To clarify, even with the bugs, you can still see out the window. We do regularly clean them. Meant to be a joke ****
