New Private Pilot: Alex Guo

Alex started flight training last 2/14 and was fully prepared today to explain the subtle difference between an “aircraft 100H inspection” and an “airframe 100H inspection”. After a satisfactory oral and flight portion, despite gusting conditions at F72, Rich Conté awarded Alex with his private pilot license.  

Congratulations Alex!

First Solo: Alex Guo

Congratulations to Alex Guo on his first solo at KOAK today!

After a couple hours flying around our little race track AKA “left traffic 28L” a few days ago, today seemed almost a leisurely affair having 28R pretty much to ourselves. The traffic was light, the tower was friendly and efficient, the winds were good and even the clouds lifted a little. Alex took the controls and confirmed that 9UL really does climb better with just one person on board.
