Mastering the Skies (SkyWatch Friday)

Ian with his flight instructor, Mickey Holton, and the Citabria taildragger (3 March 2012)
Last Saturday, after a long oral exam and practical flight test, Ian received his private pilot power license at 17 years and 3 months. We are so proud of his accomplishment.
(This is a good time to ask him for a scenic flight in the area...
Ian can fly but he cannot charge.)
Go to Skywatch Friday for some really cool sky pics.

Congratulations to Ian! That is impressive. Now he will need to get a very good job to pay for the hours of flying time.
