The hush that fell over the city of Gainesville as Kelly Chandler took to the skies for his Certified Flight Instructor checkride soon gave way to cheering, whistling and standing ovations!
The Certified Flight Instructor certificate is one of the hardest tickets to earn in aviation. Only through hard work, dedication and persistence can one become a CFI and flight Instructor Derek Metro could not be more proud of Kelly’s achievement.
Kelly has been an integral part of Lanier Flight Center for years, earning his Private, Instrument and Commercial ratings thru the Cessna Pilot Center courses at Lanier Flight Center. Kelly’s dynamic personality and dedication will make a fantastic flight instructor and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a nicer, more helpful and likable guy. Congratulations to Kelly for a great job well done.
