Congratulations to Russ Maddock who soloed this morning at KCXP, runway 27 in N752DW!! Russ took a Discovery Flight with GBA early August and from there set a strict timeline to accomplish his aviation goals. Needless to say, he is well on his way. He started with strong ground knowledge after receiving excellent instruction in the TMCC private pilot course. He is like a sponge and soaks up anything aviation which is evident in the way he is progressing. Russ shows up to his lessons extremely prepared and studies maneuvers and chair flies at home all while working full time for the Nevada ANG. Awesome job to Russ and his instructor, Pete Applegate! We hope you took the afternoon to celebrate this huge milestone!! Time to start adding more numbers to that PIC column.
