Jeff Reimer – Airline Transport Pilot Certificate (07/25/16)

If you heard a loud, “War Eagle!” from the sky above, it was not necessarily proof that the Almighty is an Auburn fan, it was however evidence of our very own Jeff Reimer successfully earning his AIRLINE TRANSPORT PILOT certificate! (But we do know heaven blessed the SEC.) Jeff’s intellect and professionalism have been a tremendous contribution to the Lanier Flight Center team, and all of us are celebrating his achievement in earning the highest rating in the skies! OUTSTANDING JOB, JEFF!
