LOOK WHO’S LEARNING TO FLY…

Kate comes from a looooong line of pilots and has recently decided to continue the trend.

From the looks of it, she’s been bouncing around in airplanes since before she could walk!

On her fathers side:.

Her father received his pilot certificate here in Valdosta in 1988 andis an active local pilot.

Her grandfather and grandmother both became pilots in the late 50’s/early 60’s and her

great grandfather was a WW1 pilot!

On her mothers side:

Her grandmother learned to fly here in Valdosta around 1990.

Kinda reminds me of Darth Vader – “Luke…it is your destiny”

More to come on this local family steeped in aviation…

This picture was taken just after Steven (left) passed his Private Pilot check-ride.

CONGRATULATIONS STEVEN!! Great job to both you and your instructor (Cliff).

Steven’s been training with us for a while and he and Cliff have been taking all kinds of

pictures and video but haven’t come off any of the footage till now??!! Expect to see a

lot of cool stuff from he and Cliff coming up.

UPDATE! Conner just soloed!!! Congratulations on your first flight alone! It’s always more

peaceful when that jabbering instructor gets out 😉

 

He’s a little camera shy but I finally got him. Conner has been close to aviation (“friends in

low places” as the saying goes) for a long time and finally jumped in with both feet. He’s

about to solo if the weather would just cooperate. I’ll get a better shot when he least expects

it!

THIS JUST IN!! International man of interest spotted fooling around with airplanes at the

Valdosta Region Airport.

 

Jeff Worn can speak with authority on the benefits of private flying vs the airlines. Not long

after his first solo, his training got unexpectedly delayed by an airline related fiasco.

Glad to have you back Jeff!

 

Jeff’s instructor Cliff Lee, the guy in the (i do believe that’s magenta) shirt, is the real trouble

maker in this shot.

They are MUCH bigger than they appear. Very cool machines!!

Go George, Go!
