Forget a Sweet Sixteen party... Ethan Vincent spent his sweet 16th birthday doing something way more fun — flying N3034Y for his first few solo laps in a busy pattern for 16L at KRNO. Soloing makes you nervous enough, but Ethan also had an entourage watching him. His dad, mom, and sister stood out by the hangars to witness his first PIC flight. Ethan is an incredible young pilot and his radio communications are totally on spot. He is no stranger to the sky. He is lucky to be able to fly with his dad in their Van’s RV-7, and loving every minute of it. The sky is home for Ethan. Next step is a couple solo flights out of the Class C airspace to Carson or Stead, finish up ground school, and stay engaged in flying until he gets closer to 17 so he can complete his requirements and checkride prep for a sweet 17 birthday. Congratulations to Ethan and his instructor Levi Mellows!! Such a memorable flight on this special birthday!
