New soloed student!!
Congratulations to Mason Koonce who soloed today at KRTS, runway 26 in N495SP!! He realized today how awesome it is to fly without an instructor shouting orders (not that Levi ever raises his voice) and how much better the aircraft performs without the extra weight. Doing laps in the pattern at Stead has never been so much fun! Mason, a UNR student, has the goal of becoming a corporate or commercial pilot. Usually, you can find Mason flying down the trails on his mountain bike and soon he will be shredding the Northern Nevada skies in one of these powerful C172’s. Mason is so focused and hit this solo goal right on time. Now on to knocking out the rest of his requirements and prepping for checkride. Congratulations to Mason and Levi!! The day does not get much better than this!
