I am very excited to announce that Lucas Ranieri is now accepting job offers as Alameda Aero Club’s newest commercial pilot! Lucas made the trip across a very hot Central Valley and into the California foothills for the opportunity to impress DPE Ken Cobb with his fine stick and rudder skills. Congratulations Lucas!
Timothy Jordan passed the private pilot practical test Tuesday with DPE Rich Batchelder at Concord. I’m told Tim impressed Rich with his command of 4BN; not an easy feat! Congrats Tim, your hard work has paid off.
Congratulations to Richard Cziva. Her wife gave birth to their beautiful daughter last Monday! Apparently there is no better time to do the final preparations for a checkride. After sleeping 3-4 hours a day, he didn’t really pass the S in IMSAFE, but he did pass his private pilot checkride with Ken Cobbs at O22. It was a relatively cool day at Columbia, the temperature barely exceeded 100 degrees and the density altitude was only a bit above 5000ft. Now time to order a headset for the baby.
a toaster-oven-hot day at KMCC, after he first made sure all his self
manufactured C172 checklists were properly attached to the carefully
placed velcro tabs on the brow of the instrument panel on 9UL, Zoltan
Olah took Richard Conté (DPE) up for a flight. After the usual air work
and pattern shenanigans Richard deemed the performance worthy and issued
Zoltan his temporary private pilot license.
