Herve Earns his PPL

Okay - I am seriously behind on this one, but here it is (with apologies, Herve)! [caption id="attachment_2178" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="Click to Enlarge Image"][/caption] Congratulations to Herve Fontaine on earning his Private Pilot certificate in a Diamond Star DA40! As our flying enthusiasts will remember from a previous post Herve had completed his solo flight and was rapidly progressing towards finishing his requirements. The weather conspired against him on a couple of occasions (including a well planned cross country flight to Paso Robles) but Herve persevered, worked around Mother Nature and safely finished what needed to be done. No matter what obstacles were presented, Herve overcame with a smile. (The smiles were sometimes accompanied by a short monologue in fluent French which may have belied his true feelings but cheered his non-French speaking fellow pilots nonetheless.) It was a pleasure flying with you Herve! I can't wait for your multi-engine training!
