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.
I’m happy to announce that Benj Bellon passed his private pilot check ride on Wed, June 12!
went in with a 98% score on his written and, as expected with such a
high written exam score, the oral portion was super fast. After less than 1.5 hours flying time, Rich Conte (DPE) deemed Benj “a very good pilot”.
Roland Koch passed his instrument checkride with Richard Conte based in McClellan on Tuesday, June 11.
“What do you mean you never flew a DME arc?” “Let me make one up for you now”…
First unusual attitude was …. straight and level 🙂
RNAV 33 into Lincoln, followed by ILS 15 … “Unable, ILS out of service” “It wasn’t NOTAMed…”
Oh well, switch to localizer 16, partial panel, or rather no panel, since the stickies kept falling off, so the examiner used his hands instead…. followed by one ILS 16 into KMCC, and there we are, newly instrumented pilot! Congrats!
