Barkowski….what can we say about this Crumbl Cookie loving guy? Well, there is a lot but we will keep this somewhat professional and focus on his positives. Like becoming a commercial pilot!!! Believe it or not, Tanner Barkowski flew N752DW through all the required commercial pilot maneuvers, nailed his power-off 180, and received that hard earned piece of paper saying he can operate under commercial privileges. Tanner was a Part 141 student for his instrument and commercial and was constantly in the books or up in the air. He is the one who has been hogging the schedule. We joke, but Tanner is an incredible person and has been such a joy to have here at the office (when he actually shows up for work). Tanner is leaving us in a couple weeks as he, and his wonderful wife Dani, move to North Carolina. To say he will be missed is an understatement. We wish Tanner the best of luck as he works toward his CFI and CFII back east. We can’t wait to walk on an airline and see him in the cockpit - then turn around and take a different flight. Huge congratulationsTanner!! Great job as well to his CFI Jack Darlington!
