New Private Pilot: Charles Almy

Congratulations Charles Almy, Alameda Aero Club’s newest Private Pilot! Charles took DPE John Ewing for a ride in 05D today and managed to impress him with some maneuvers and pattern work at a seriously windy Rio Vista airport. If you see Charles around the airport give him a pat on the back (tall guy, big beard, you can’t miss him)! Nice job Charles!

New Instrument Pilot: Maggie Borth

Congratulations to Maggie Borth on a successful Instrument checkride up at Columbia with DPE Ken Cobb! Special thanks also to Andrew Kilroy for doing a late night GPS update so the airplane was legal for the checkride. Also special thanks to Matthew Evjen for a quick cylinder swap on Tuesday so that both Maggie and James Burgess could get’er done! Two days, two successful checkrides.
