John Stauter is no stranger to check rides. He and his LFC flight instructor, Chuck Padgett, have been working on John’s Multi-engine Instructor Add-on Rating form many weeks.
But, with a long career as both a Navy Pilot and Delta Captain, and supporting a double handful of Delta jet type ratings on his ATP certificate, John’s flight instructor was surprised to see him climbing out of our Seminole, dripping in sweat after his successful 2 hour check ride with the FAA examiner. When Chuck asked John how it went, John’s comment says it all…”Aha,.. THAT was a real work-out, a REAL work-out”. Wow!
John passed his Multi-Engine Instructor checkride on Thursday, October 7th, 2010 with the FAA down at Fulton County Airport. What a great accomplishment! It takes and ton of effort, skill and commitment to obtain this type of instructor rating. All of us here at LFC say, “Outstanding job, John!”. What a terrific, professional addition to the Lanier Flight School instructor staff.
