If you want to enjoy the rainbow, be prepared to endure the storm. And holy moly, have we had plenty of storms. Jose Saldana endured the storm and today got his rainbow by soloing!! This hard-working aviator has been enduring storm after storm and today got a brief window to get to KRTS and log some PIC time using runway 32. Variable, sometimes surprising winds, a little snow for his CFI Troy waiting on the ramp, made for some unique conditions. Jose put his Northern Nevada flying skills to work and handled it like a seasoned pilot. This soloed aviator does not sit still. He works multiple jobs to achieve his dream of a career in aviation. Between working at the airport, out at the tech center, and others in between, then flight/ground training, he rarely has time for his other love, soccer. Keep working for it Jose! If you do the hard work, it pays off. Today that was evident. Huge congratulations to Jose and his CFI Troy Ware!
