David is now officially America’s newest Private Pilot. From his first flight with CFI Mike Descoteaux in the pre-Covid times, David has been a hard-working, insightful and contagiously enthusiastic student. The joy David exudes when he’s in an airplane, near an airplane, or just generally talking about an airplane is the kind of joy every pilot should experience. He aced his checkride (the DPE bestowed more than a few superlatives and compliments for David.) And we know he’s going to ace the rest of his journey to becoming an airline captain. Congrats, David!
