After a couple of days of being snowed in and having to survive the traffic of getting into Reno, Travis Johnson, adventurer and river running master has now added another impressive skill onto the docket: solo pilot! That’s right, Travis soloed at Silver Springs on runway 6 in N328ME! After shivering on the ramp and dodging the incoming ceilings, Travis made the trek to Silver Springs and flaunted his landings to his instructor, Ryan Mill, who then decided to set Travis loose. To no one’s surprise, Travis buttered all of his landings, and after having so much fun, had to eventually pick up Ryan to fly back home. If Travis isn’t crushing ground school or flying to his heart’s content, you can find him doing anything in the water. He loves to go kayaking, river rafting, and sailing the ocean blue… really any opportunity to flaunt his boating license ;) Huge congratulations to Travis and his right-hand man, Ryan Mill who’s been guiding him along this journey from the beginning. Now go fly, Travis!
