Smile Nickb145 is a private pilot!

I'm very proud to report that my 17yo son Nicholas, Nickb145 here on VAF passed his private pilot check ride today!

Now we get to to work towards him flying our Bonanza, getting tailwheel training, finishing then flying our RV-8!

-Greg

Well done.

Remember what your dad said (I assume he did)..........It is a LICENCE TO LEARN.

We are all students to the art of flying......As spok says....Live long and prosper!

Dont be a dumb statistic.

Enjoy the privilege that most never have.

And be grateful to your parents, no doubt they had a fair hand in all this.
