2 New Private Pilots in our group!

Congratulations to two LLT student pilots who joined the ranks of Private Pilots this weekend. Both girls took their check rides and got their tickets this weekend! Way to go ladies! Emilie Ann Phillips has some tailwheel time and finished up in a Cherokee. She’s already  planning on heading to Hampton (7B3)  for a refresher in a Cub then working her way towards flying her husband’s RV-4. Elizabeth Reese started in a Luscombe and finished her training and checkride in the family’s 1941 J4 Cub.

“I’ve been busy! The net result of all that business, though, is that I passed my checkride this weekend and I’m now officially a private pilot :D”

“I am very happy to be able to tell you that I passed my private pilot checkride yesterday, April 16, 2012!!! :)  It was no easy task either! I had bumpy air, problems with the examiner’s headset so that it was difficult for us to hear each other, and out-of-the-ordinary requests from the control tower along with a request from the examiner for a maneuver that I had never even tried before! After we landed, I was SO relieved (and surprised) when she said, “Well, I’m going to send you home as a private pilot today.” I couldn’t have been more excited than I was in that moment! Thanks for the well wishes and support. Now, to prepare for Osh…”
Sincerely,
Elizabeth Reese 🙂

    Actually, I started my training in a Luscombe, and I finished my training and did my checkride in a 1941 J4 Cub! Family heirloom since 1958…wonderful little plane! 🙂
