Bruce Mistarz – Private Pilot Certificate (01/29/18)

It would take a lot more than gusting winds to blow Bruce Mistarz off course during his check-ride! It was blustery outside, but Bruce remained calm and focused inside, decisively becoming Lanier Flight Center’s newest PRIVATE PILOT! Bruce’s instructor, Chuck Padgett, truly enjoyed working with him, and complimented Bruce’s good judgement and piloting skills. Please join Chuck and all of us at LFC in exclaiming, “OUTSTANDING JOB, BRUCE!”

As Lanier Flight Center’s newest PRIVATE PILOT, the sky’s the limit for Rodrigo! His instructor, Rex Smith, couldn’t be prouder of his check-ride success, and says Rodrigo is eager to pursue his next goal; the instrument rating.

Tanner Jorgensen – Sport Pilot Certificate (01/03/18)


Through weather delays and multiple logistical challenges of rescheduling his check ride, Tanner Jorgensen hunkered-down and persevered with a humble decisive optimism! And it’s no coincidence that Lanier Flight Center’s first pilot accomplishment of 2018 emulated the winning attitude of his college culture— the national championship contending Georgia Bulldogs! Tanner came prepared for every lesson, kept his eye on the goal, and scored a SPORT PILOT CERTIFICATE with FAA DPE Randy Haralson! Tanner’s instructor, Rick Cornelison, and all of us at LFC have enjoyed sharing his aviation journey, and know he will have many more successes! Please join us in a big, “WAY TO GO, TANNER!”
