Ruth soloed June 16th, 2018. The solo is the first time a pilot flies without the instructor on board and is a milestone towards aviation independence. The shirt tails are cut symbolizing that the “apron strings” have been cut. These are beautifully embroidered with the details and put on display for all to see until the pilot earns her certificate, at which time it is returned.

Eric soloed in June 2018 AND scored an amazing 100% on his written test! He is a dedicated pilot, a Private Pilot who has since earned his instrument  and commercial ratings. He went elsewhere and achieved the multi-engine add-on.
