Erich Fritchman – First Solo (03/18/15)


Join us in a big CONGRATULATIONS for Erich Fritchman on his FIRST SOLO FLIGHT on March 18!  Erich’s instructor, James Weatherford, applauded him from the ground as Erich made three beautiful landings at KGVL in Cessna Skyhawk N2458M.  WAY TO GO, ERICH!


Brooks Smith – Instrument Rating (03/17/15)


Some say it was the ‘luck of the Irish’, but Brooks Smith’s instructor, David Gazda, knows that Brooks’ determination, knowledge, and skills earned him an INSTRUMENT RATING this St. Patrick’s Day!  Brooks has earned both his Private Pilot Certificate and his Instrument Rating in his own Cessna TTx, which most leprechauns would rather find at the end of the rainbow than a pot o’ gold!  Join all of us in in shouting, “CONGRATULATIONS, BROOKS!”

Ben Hamilton – First Solo (03/08/15)


Whether it’s on two wheels or under two wings, Ben Hamilton has the skills to go far!  Join all of us at Lanier Flight Center in congratulating Ben on his FIRST SOLO FLIGHT on Sunday, March 8!  Ben left his instructor, James Weatherford, watching from the ground as he took to the skies in Cessna Skyhawk N61942!  WAY TO GO, BEN!

Ed Olivett – Private Pilot Certificate (03/07/15)


Ed Olivett is a man on a mission— literally!  He has plans for using his aviation training to serve, and all of us at Lanier Flight Center could not be happier to celebrate Ed for becoming our newest PRIVATE PILOT!  FAA DPE Randy Haralson gave Ed two thumbs-up, and Ed’s instructor, Jon Owens, could not be prouder!  Join us in saying, “GREAT JOB, ED!”
