Join all of us at Lanier Flight Center in welcoming our friend, Mark Hughes, ‘into the ranks’ with the achievement of his CERTIFIED FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR rating! Mark’s instructor, Chuck Padgett, has enjoyed every moment of Mark’s journey and knows that Mark has what it takes to be a super CFI! Mark demonstrated the knowledge, skills, and well-rounded qualifications necessary during all facets of his examination with FAA Inspector Bob Williams, who gave him two thumbs-up on Friday, May 27! OUTSTANDING JOB, MARK!
It’s time to celebrate with Lanier Flight Center’s newest PRIVATE PILOT, Josh Brandes! Josh took-off in Cessna Skyhawk N623KW and received a big ‘thumbs-up’ from FAA DPE Randy Haralson! Josh’s experience with LFC CFI James Weatherford paid-off as he demonstrated great skill for his check ride, and James said working with Josh was a lot of fun! We wish Josh ‘blue skies’ and many adventures with his new rating! Join all of us at Lanier Flight Center in exclaiming, “YOU DID IT, JOSH!”
It was a beautiful spring day at PDK as Ron Gunter took-off for his FIRST SOLO FLIGHT! Ron’s instructor, Jeff Reimer, proudly watched from the ground as he ascended in Cessna Skyhawk N109TJ! Join all of us at Lanier Flight Center in celebrating Ron’s entry into the world of solo flight! He will be a Private Pilot soon! WAY TO GO, RON!
