Our Newest Twin Star Pilot Passes Despite the Weather

Congratulations to Simon Powell who passed his Multi-Engine Private Pilot checkride on Wednesday! Simon was meant to complete the course in four days straight with a checkride waiting at the end, but Mother Nature had other plans. His schedule coincided with the worst storms in recent memory: tornado warnings, water spouts, flooded taxiways, 50 kt wind gusts and hail were among the weather phenomenon we saw during the week-long series of storms. On the day of the checkride, though, the skies cleared, the clouds parted, the sun shined brightly and Simon flew perfectly. Well done, Simon!
