What is so special about today, you may ask? Dr. Dre’s 58th birthday? Yoko Ono’s 90th birthday? The 93rd anniversary of Pluto’s discovery by some random dude with a telescope? While all of these events have their own special place in history, we have something of our own to add to the books! That’s right! Our very own Samuel Bacino kicked his instructor, Cody Lucero out of the airplane, strapped on a set of wings and blasted off into the sky! Sure, Pluto might be the 10th most massive known object to orbit the sun, but Sam was the 1st most massive object orbiting the Reno airport on this day, Feb 18th, 2023 at approximately 11 am (he was the only one in the pattern). Mark your calendars so you too will be able to retrieve this mind-blowing fact and share this day in history as a smooth ice breaker at your next cocktail party! And in case you would like to add a little extra detail to the story, Sam is earning his Private Pilot certificate all while attending classes full time at the University of Nevada, Reno as a mathematics major! Congratulations to Sam on achieving this huge first milestone! FIRST SOLO!
