On Friday, May 30, it is very likely that the proverbial bar was raised for Private Pilot Practical Tests! If so, it’s because Harrison Summerour became Lanier Flight Center’s newest PRIVATE PILOT! Harrison’s instructor, Jon Owens, and everyone here at LFC wishes Harrison all the best; and we all agree that the Air Force Academy is getting a fine cadet, a capable pilot, and an exemplary young man. Like the U.S. Air Force song says, “Off (you) go into the wild blue yonder!”

BEST WISHES for a high-flying future, Zack!
It was a milestone day for Brooks Smith and for his FAA DPE, Randy Haralson, when Brooks achieved his PRIVATE PILOT CERTIFICATE in his Cessna TTx! Brooks and his instructor, David Gazda, have been all smiles preparing for his check ride in the TTx, and word is, the FAA DPE at KGRD came out of the cockpit with a permanent grin! Congratulations and many happy horizons, Brooks!
