What’s better than one new soloed student pilot? Two soloed student pilots!!! First, Reed Bennett soloed today in N495SP at KRTS, runway 08! Reed has been training with his Dad, Bob Bennett. Today the proud Dad got to watch Reed take his first few laps in the Stead pattern. Such an awesome achievement and the first solo in the new GBA plane. Congratulations to Reed and Bob for all the hard work they put into getting to this point! Reed is quickly on his way to getting his PPL.
Second, congratulations to James Morgan who also soloed at KRTS, runway 08, but in N328ME! James has been flying for a couple months while working for Alaskan Airlines and also going to school. He was working with Emmett and recently transitioned to Levi Mellows who today cut him loose at Stead to take those memorable first few laps! Congratulations to James, Levi, and Emmett for the success!
