Oliver Smith – First Solo (12/15/15)


It didn’t require elf magic or special reindeer to give Oliver Smith lift as he took to the skies on his FIRST SOLO FLIGHT!  But all of Santa’s helpers at Lanier Flight Center gave Oliver a big round of applause as he departed in Cessna Skycatcher N70252 with his instructor, David Schiff, proudly watching from the ground!  Oliver then made three beautiful landings at KPDK!  WAY TO GO, OLIVER!





Brett Sands – Private Pilot Certificate (12/08/15)


It’s time to celebrate with Brett Sands who became Lanier Flight Center’s newest PRIVATE PILOT on December 8!  Brett flew Cessna Skyhawk N109TJ and received a big ‘thumbs-up’ from his FAA DPE!  Brett’s experience with his instructor, Joe Courtney, paid-off as he demonstrated great skill for his check ride!  Joe said working with Brett was a lot of fun, and we wish Brett ‘blue skies’ and many adventures with his new rating!  Join all of us at Lanier Flight Center in exclaiming, “YOU DID IT, BRETT!”
