Two New Pilots in December: Eveland and Smecal

Heartiest congratulations to Sergiu Smecal and Mike Eveland for successfully passing their Private Pilot checkrides with DPE Donna Webster. Sergiu owns a nice Mooney, which he plans to fly for both business and pleasure, and Mike is shopping for a nice C182 to take him and his family to his cabin in Northern California’s Lake Almanor region. Way to go guys, stay safe.

Mega congrats to Doyle Wilson for his first solo, performed (nearly) perfectly at KBFL on 12-27-17. Doyle is a Board Member at Shafter Airport, owns his own hangar and is actively searching for the perfect plane. Be sure to give him a big ‘Boo-Ya!” when you see him around the club.

Armando Solos!

Congratulations to Armando Espinoza for his first-ever solo on November 26! CFI Mark Zuniga reports that he did an outstanding job, and emerged from the airplane with a smile ear-to-ear. Armando lives in Delano and works in Palmdale/Lancaster so looks forward to the day when he will be able to fly to work. Way to go, Armando!
