Ricky knows how to realize a dream. Before he started flying, he had already taken a passion and transformed it into his full time profession. As an entrepreneur, he understands what it means to be committed, responsible and dedicated. He took all of that, all the lessons that life has taught him and threw it all at his flight training. Even when he suffered an injury that kept him from flying for several months, he never cancelled a lesson. He used that time to have ground lessons with his instructor, becoming as knowledgable as any Private Pilot can be.

Today we are proud to say that Ricky has, for the second time in his life, taken a dream and turned it into reality. Congratulations, Ricky. You have earned this. And thank you for being an inspiration for so many of our student pilots to look up to.
