Mike passes his Checkride!

Congratulations to our newest Private Pilot!!! Mike passed his checkride on Nov. 8th with flying colors. After a reschedule due to weather, he was happy for a sunny, calm wind, perfect day to arrive. During his training he transitioned from the low wing Piper to the Cessna 152, then upgraded to the Cessna 172. Mike has some added aircraft experience that most other newly minted Private Pilots don't have. 

He also enjoyed his freedom as a solo pilot so much that I had to convince him that he really didn't have to visit every airport around the Bay Area.  There would be plenty of time as a Private Pilot and it was time to prepare for his checkride.
