We've got some serious aviation magic to share! Meet the legend, Shane Havens – the pilot who's not afraid to clock in some serious road time from Winnemucca, is crafting his own winged masterpiece, and has been giving his all to flight training these past months. The moment we've all been waiting for is here – Shane just nailed it and officially earned his wings as a Private Pilot! Despite the unpredictable weather trying to play spoiler this month, Shane found the perfect window to soar through his checkride with style. Sure, Shane's heart may forever beat for the trusty C172, but he's gearing up to own the skies with his very own, personally built RV-10! What can’t this guy do?? He is a force of nature, and now he's added the title of Private Pilot to his already impressive collection of achievements. Awesome job Shane for this incredible milestone, and a massive shoutout to his co-pilot through it all, Instructor Extraordinaire, Kevin Marshall! Shane, spread those wings wide and soar high – we'll be watching for you cruising right passed us at 170kts in your RV!
